Emirates is to deploy a third daily Airbus A380 from Dubai International Airport to Manchester Airport and has also adjusted its A380 schedule into Birmingham Airport from Dubai.
As of 1 January 2017 into Manchester the carrier the third A380 will replace a Boeing 777-300ER. An A380 has a payload of around eight tonnes of cargo.
Manchester has been an important route for Emirates over the last 25 years and the second route launched into the UK after London’s Gatwick Airport as flies 21 weekly flights.
From the same date above, Emirates will also swap its current A380 service at Birmingham from the morning to the afternoon departure slot, to offer customers even more connections beyond Dubai to other Emirates A380 destinations.
