DUBAI, 28 April 2017: Travel to Spain gets considerably easier now that Emirates will upgrade all of its Spain bound flights to A380 services.
In addition to the existing double daily A380 service to Barcelona, the airline will operate a double daily A380 service to Madrid, significantly boosting seat capacity from Dubai to Spain.
This change enables more A380 to A380 connections to and from key business and leisure destinations such as Australia, China, South Korea and Southeast Asia with just one stop in Dubai.
Commencing 1 September, Emirates flights EK143/144 will be operated by an Airbus A380 aircraft in a three-class configuration with 14 private suites in first class, 76 flat-bed seats in business class and 399 seats in economy class.
Passengers in all classes will enjoy access to Wi-Fi and over 2,500 channels of films, TV shows, music and games, with an impressive selection in Spanish through its digital widescreen, Emirates’ award-winning inflight entertainment system.
Emirates’ flight EK143 departs from Dubai International Airport at 1430 and arrives in Madrid at 2020. The outbound flight EK144 departs from Madrid at 2205 and arrives in Dubai at 0715 the following day.
The airline currently operates two daily services between Dubai and Madrid, as well as a double daily A380 service between Barcelona and Dubai.
