Emirates celebrates 10 years of A380 at Heathrow

Emirates has celebrated 10 years of A380 operations at Heathrow. 

Since its first flight to the London airport from Dubai on December 1, 2008, the Emirates A380 has carried more than 12.3 million passengers on 14,581 flights, clocking up more than 80,195,000 km in total.

To mark the occasion, Emirates launched a 10-day special fare offer on select flights from Heathrow to Dubai, offering passengers a £380 return fare in Economy and £2,380 in Business Class.

Richard Jewsbury, divisional vice president, UK at the airline, said: "From welcoming the first Emirates A380 to Heathrow 10 years ago to now operating six daily A380 flights from Heathrow to Dubai, we are proud of the phenomenal progress we’ve made in opening up Dubai and the world beyond to passengers on an aircraft they universally love to fly on.

Over the past decade, the A380 has continued to offer leisure and business customers alike flying from Heathrow a highly desirable travel experience. With its superior standards of inflight comfort and luxury from First Class right through to Economy Class, the Emirates A380 has been the front-runner of the industry and we look forward to welcoming even more passengers to experience the A380’s iconic on board offering in the years to come.’’

Simon Eastburn, airline business development director at Heathrow, said; “We’re delighted to celebrate this milestone moment with Emirates, especially as our passengers can join the celebrations by taking advantage of the special fare offer* on one of our most popular routes.”
