Emirates A380 Resumes Vienna Operations

Emirates A380

The Emirates A380 has returned to Vienna after a break of nearly four years, carrying more than 400 passengers to the Austrian capital. Emirates has become the only air carrier to operate the double-decker at Vienna International Airport, a significant milestone in the history of the partnership between the two entities.

The famous aircraft made its maiden landing on Austrian territory in 2014 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Emirates’ operations there. In 2016, an A380 regular route between Dubai and Vienna began.

“We are delighted to bring our A380 back on the Vienna-Dubai route and offer our passengers an incomparable experience on board the popular aircraft. The A380 is Emirates’ flagship aircraft and a fan-favourite among passengers worldwide. The return of the double-decker marks a milestone for Emirates’ operations in Austria and demonstrates the significance of our market in Emirates’ global route network,” says Elisabeth Zauner, Country Manager of Emirates Austria, on the resumption of the scheduled Emirates A380 operations to Vienna.

Julian Jäger, Joint CEO of Vienna Airport, is also enthusiastic about the return of the Emirates A380: “I am delighted that the Emirates A380 is back in regular service to Vienna. The world’s largest passenger aircraft is a highlight for all travellers and a great enrichment for Vienna Airport. The associated increase in capacity is a further sign of strengthening connections to the Near and Middle East and is good for tourism to and from Austria.”

The A380 is now the world’s biggest passenger aircraft and the flagship of Emirates’ fleet. Emirates presently operates more than 90 A380s on its global route network, which includes major destinations such as Bangkok, Mauritius, Denpasar/Bali, and Sydney. A three-class A380 has 14 seats in First Class, 76 in Business Class, and 429 in Economy Class, accommodating a total of 519 people. This increases capacity on flights between Dubai and Vienna by roughly 20%, supporting tourism flows and providing Emirates customers with even more options for travel from the airline’s worldwide network to Austria.Emirates flight EK127 departs Dubai at 0855 hours and arrives in the Austrian capital at 1225 hours. The return flight, EK128, left Vienna at 1510 hours and arrived in Dubai at 2340 hours. All times are local.

Travellers on the Vienna-Dubai route will once again benefit from the Emirates A380’s facilities. First-class guests may take advantage of onboard shower spas, an industry-leading feature specific to the Emirates A380. The upper deck also houses the onboard lounge for first- and business-class guests. In addition, all passengers will be provided worldwide and locally inspired cuisine, as well as the award-winning in-flight entertainment system Ice, which offers up to 6,500 channels of on-demand entertainment, including Austrian material and Hollywood films with German subtitles.
