Emirates (Dubai) has announced that as of February 1, 2015, its EK019/020 service between Dubai International Airport and Manchester Airport, currently operated by a Boeing 777, will be replaced with an Airbus A380. The introduction of the second daily A380 means that half of Emirates’ 16 daily flights to the UK will be operated by an A380 from February.
The second daily A380 will increase Emirates’ capacity from Manchester by 13 per cent, with over 20 per cent of this increase in the premium cabins.
Emirates flight EK019 will depart Dubai International Airport at 1435 and arrive in Manchester at 1835. The outbound flight, EK020, will depart Manchester Airport at 2025 and arrive in Dubai at 0740 the next day.
