Emirates A380 service starts Sept. 1

Frankfurt will soon be served by the A380 flagship carrier.

Emirates is a global connector of people and places. It recently announced that Frankfurt, the financial epicentre of Germany, will be the next destination for its flagship A380 aircraft. The daily A380 service will start on Sept. 1.

Frankfurt is currently served with a triple daily Boeing 777 operation. From Sept. 1, EK45 becomes an A380 flight, leaving Dubai at 08:25 a.m. and arriving in Frankfurt at 1:15 p.m. The return double-decker flight, EK46, departs Frankfurt at 3:20 p.m. and lands in Dubai at 11:35 p.m.

Peter Feldmann, Lord Mayor of Frankfurt said: “Frankfurt welcomes the Emirates A380, an aircraft that is partly produced in Germany and acts as a worldwide ambassador for European top-class engineering. Emirates’ decision to deploy the A380 further strengthens Frankfurt Airport’s position as one of the leading hubs of international aviation.”
