Details indicate that the double-decker aircraft will make three additional stops before landing in Birmingham on 1 July 2023: Nice, Glasgow, and Birmingham.
There will now be 11 daily flights to London, including 6 to Heathrow and 3 to Gatwick, according to the airline, which also announced that it will resume its second daily route to London Stansted Airport on May 1.
Emirates started operating A380s to Birmingham in 2016, Nice in 2017, and Glasgow in 2019. However, due to coronavirus-related travel restrictions, Emirates discontinued its flight operations there.
Along with growing travel demand, it also keeps growing its global network. Emirates flies to 40 locations across the world with its flagship A380 at the moment.
By the end of the summer, Emirates’ A380s will be operating to close to 50 destinations, recapitulating approximately 90% of the airline’s pre-pandemic operations. Currently operating more than 80 A380s, Emirates is the largest A380 operator.
