Emirates Expands A380 Service to Amsterdam

Good news for global jet-setters: Khaleej Times is reporting that Emirates’ A380 route network extended to the Netherlands today with the launch of services to Amsterdam.

Emirates is the first carrier to offer a scheduled A380 service to the Netherlands. The double-decker plane will operate as EK 0147, departing Dubai to Amsterdam daily, and will become the 19th A380 destination. Currently, the carrier’s 22 A380s serve Amsterdam, Auckland, Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong, Jeddah, Johannesburg, Kuala Lumpur, London Heathrow, Manchester, Munich, New York JFK, Paris, Rome, Seoul, Shanghai, Sydney, Toronto, Tokyo, with Melbourne set to launch on 1st October and Moscow on 1st December.

Each Emirates’ A380 offers an Onboard Lounge on the upper deck for Premium Class passengers. First Class passengers can also access two Onboard Shower Spas.

Even better: Emirates’ facilities at Dubai International Airport will soon be improved by the opening of the world’s first dedicated A380 terminal early next year.
