Emirates to offer signature A380 service on flights to Bangkok

Emirates announces that its flagship A380 service will return to Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport from 28 November.

The aircraft upgrade will help Emirates to meet strong passenger demand for inbound travel into the popular holiday destination, on the heels of Thailand’s re-opening to international tourists who are vaccinated.

The daily A380 flights will operate as EK372/373, adding much-needed capacity and frequency to its flights to Bangkok, in response to the uptick in travel demand that the airline is witnessing.

The Emirates A380 aircraft to serve the route will offer seats in First Class, Business Class and Economy Class.

The deployment of the double-decker aircraft will complement the existing services, EK384/385, also operating on a daily basis with a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration, in addition to its five weekly flights to Bangkok via Phuket, operating as EK378/379, which is set to increase its frequency to daily from 1 December.

The daily A380 service to Bangkok, flight EK372, will depart Dubai daily at 09:30hrs, arriving in Bangkok at 18:40hrs. Flight EK373 is scheduled to depart Bangkok at 20:35hrs to arrive in Dubai at 00:50hrs the next day. All times are local.

When the A380 service launches on 28 November, Emirates will offer three daily services to passengers travelling to and from Bangkok, in its support for the country it has been serving for over three decades.

Emirates is playing a vital role in facilitating the tourism industry recovery, spearheaded by the government’s efforts.

The boosted capacity and frequency increase will help meet demand from holiday-makers originating from Europe, Africa and the Middle East to travel to the Thai capital.
