Emirates Flies A380 To Beijing And Shanghai
Daily services to Beijing and Shanghai upgraded to an A380 operation from 1 July 2017
In response to popular customer demand, Emirates will provide an all-a380 service on its Beijing (PEK) and Shanghai (PVG) services when it upgrades the second daily flights, EK308/ EK309 on its PEK route and EK304/305 on its PVG route, replacing the current Boeing 777-300ER operations. The move, effective from July 1 2017, will increase capacity to both Beijing and Shanghai, offering Emirates passengers even more seamless A380-to-a380 connections between the two Chinese cities and over 30 international points, including 18 points in the UK and Europe, via its hub in Dubai. This upgrade strengthens Emirates’ overall mainland China offering, which also includes services to Guangzhou, Yinchuan and Zhengzhou.
On Emirates flights to and from China, passengers in all classes can enjoy local Chinese cuisine, and industry-leading service from Chinese-speaking cabin crew. Passengers can also enjoy over 2,500 channels of the latest films and TV shows, including Chinese content, as well as music and games on Emirates’ ice Digital Widescreen, which has been named World’s Best In-flight Entertainment at the prestigious Skytrax World Airline Awards for a record 12 years running. Emirates was also named Best Airline in the World in Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards for Airlines 2017.
First and Business Class passengers on the Emirates A380 can spend time during their flight socialising in the popular Onboard Lounge on the upper deck of the aircraft, and First Class passengers can enjoy exclusive use of the on-board shower spas to refresh during flights. Premium customers are also offered complimentary chauffeur drive services to and from Beijing and Shanghai airports, lounge access and priority check-in. Emirates also offers generous baggage allowances, with up to 35kg in Economy Class, 40kg in Business Class and 50kg in First Class.
