Emirates to offer signature A380 service on flights to Bengaluru

Emirates announces that its flagship A380 service will be introduced for the first time to Bengaluru from 30 October to serve its customers on the busy route.

Emirates also becomes the first airline to operate scheduled passenger services utilising the A380, the world’s largest commercial aircraft in service, at Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport.

The aircraft upgrade will allow customers travelling to and from the South Indian city to enjoy its signature services across a broader network.

Bengaluru will be the second city in India to be served by the iconic Emirates A380 aircraft, with customers enjoying the signature experience on the Dubai – Mumbai route since 2014.

Emirates has nine daily flights travelling from the UK to Bengaluru with connections in Dubai of less than three and a half hours including three from London Heathrow, one from London Gatwick, one from Birmingham, two from Manchester, one from Newcastle, and one from Glasgow airport.

By October 2022, the airline will be serving the UK with 110 weekly flights to Dubai, including: six times daily to London Heathrow; double daily A380 service to Gatwick; daily service to Stansted; three times daily to Manchester, including a double daily A380 service (starting 1st October, 2022); double daily service to Birmingham; five weekly flights to Newcastle; and a daily service to Glasgow.

The A380 flights from Dubai to Bengaluru will operate as EK568/569 with an aircraft in a three-class configuration, offering seats in Economy Class, in addition to premium cabins, in Business Class and First Class.

The deployment of the double-decker aircraft will complement its existing services, EK564/565 and EK566/567, each also operating on a daily basis with modern wide-body Boeing 777 aircraft.

Flights EK564/565 will operate using a mix of Boeing 777-200LR and Boeing 777-300ER aircraft while EK566/567 will offer seats in First Class, Business Class and Economy Class aboard a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
