Emirates to bring the Airbus A380 to Kuwait starting on July 16

Emirates (Dubai) will introduce a scheduled Airbus A380 service to Kuwait City starting on July 16, marking the airline’s 25th anniversary of flights to the country of Kuwait.

EK 857 and EK 858 will be upgraded to a double decker, bringing Emirates’ highly popular flagship aircraft to Kuwait International Airport.

It was July 16, 1989 when Emirates began flights between Dubai and Kuwait, and the airline now serves the route five times daily with a combination of Boeing and Airbus aircraft.

The Emirates A380 on the Kuwait route will offer 14 First Class Private Suites, 76 flat-bed seats in Business Class and 399 seats in a quiet and spacious Economy Class.

Kuwait is only the second market in the Middle East to be served by the airline’s A380 aircraft after the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Emirates currently operates its A380 to 28 of its 142 global destinations.

Emirates Airline (Dubai) will upgrade the Dubai-Toronto route to the new Airbus A380 on June 1, 2009. The new type will be operated three times a week on the new route. Twice-daily Dubai-Bangkok A380 service will also be started on June 1. The changes are a result of the company dropping A380 service to New York (JFK) on June 30 due to the diminished demand.
