Emirates launches A380 flights to Tokyo, Casablanca and Sao Paulo
Sunday, 26th March 2017

Emirates today launched three A380 destinations from Dubai to Tokyo - Narita, Casablanca and Sao Paulo. With this triple deployment, Emirates will be the first airline to operate scheduled A380 services in Latin America as well as to North Africa. In addition, the Emirates A380 service to Sao Paulo marks the airline’s 10th year of operations in Brazil, which began with daily flights between Dubai and Sao Paulo in October 2007.

Early Sunday morning, Emirates flight EK318 set off from Dubai for Narita, Japan. This was followed by flight EK751 to Casablanca, and then flight EK261 to Sao Paulo.

On all three routes, the A380 replaces an existing Boeing 777 service. The A380 aircraft can transport up to 515 passengers per flight, and eight tonnes of cargo.

Emirates is the world’s largest operator of A380s, with 94 currently in its fleet and a further 48 on order. Since 2008, the airline has carried over 65 million passengers on its flagship aircraft which now flies to 49 cities on six continents.
