Emi­rates wel­comes its 100th A380 air­craft with spe­cial deals

Arab News - - CORPORATE PR -

Emi­rates will cel­e­brate a mile­stone in avi­a­tion his­tory when it wel­comes the de­liv­ery of its 100th A380 air­craft later this year. The air­line is call­ing Saudi trav­el­ers to join in the cel­e­bra­tion with spe­cial fares to the Mid­dle East, South­east Asia, In­dian Ocean, Europe, UK and North Amer­ica.

Book­ings have to be made from Tues­day to Sept. 21, for travel be­tween Friday and Dec. 7.

Cel­e­bra­tory A380 fares to pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tions from Saudi Ara­bia in­clude Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Mal­dives, Mu­nich, Paris, Lon­don, Canada, Los An­ge­les and New York while prices start from SR880 ($235) for econ­omy class and SR3,480 for business class.

The Emi­rates A380 has been in ser­vice for over nine years, and Emi­rates claims to be the world’s largest op­er­a­tor of the air­craft. The air­line now op­er­ates A380 flights to 48 des­ti­na­tions across six con­ti­nents, al­most a third of its global net­work. This year Emi­rates in­tro­duced the A380 on routes to Sao Paulo, Casablanca and Nice.

On the Emi­rates A380, first class pas­sen­gers can re­lax in one of 14 flat-bed, mas­sage-equipped pri­vate suites. The cabin also has two on­board shower spas. Business class pas­sen­gers can re­lax in seats that con­vert to flat beds up to 87 inches long, whilst those trav­el­ing in econ­omy class can stretch out in seats with a pitch of up to 33 inches. Across all classes, trav­el­ers can en­joy a se­lec­tion of over 2,500 chan­nels on its in­flight en­ter­tain­ment sys­tem, ice. The air­line said its new­est ver­sion of the Emi­rates A380 fea­tures the widest in­di­vid­ual in-seat econ­omy class screens in the in­dus­try, mea­sur­ing in at 13.3 inches.

Emi­rates op­er­ates to four gate­ways in Saudi Ara­bia: Riyadh, Jed­dah, Dam­mam and Mad­i­nah util­is­ing its Boe­ing and Air­bus fleet.
