Zurich to Join Emirates A380 Network
One of the fastest growing airlines in the world, Emirates, has announced that it will boost services to Switzerland with the introduction of a daily A380 service to Zurich. The new service will launch from 1 January 2014, flights EK087 from Dubai to Zurich and its return sector EK088 will be operated by an A380, offering an increased capacity of more than 1100 additional seats every week in both directions. The service is currently operated by a Boeing 777-300ER. The A380 is spread over two decks offering an on-board lounge on the upper deck for Premium Class passengers and two on-board shower spas for First Class passengers.
“Travellers from Switzerland will soon be able to enjoy the Emirates’ A380, being seamlessly connected through the Dubai hub to our dynamically growing network, providing connectivity to global hubs in Asia and Australia such as Bangkok, Sydney and Singapore. These markets, which are positioned as economic and tourism centres, are served with multiple daily flights,” said Thierry Antinori, Emirates’ Executive Vice President, Passenger Sales Worldwide.
Emirates will continue to serve Zurich with a double daily operation, which will equate to more than 870 seats on offer per day. www.emirates.com
