Emirates brings Perth A380 service forward

In response to high demand, the airline will bring the service forward by one month, taking off with more than 500 seats each way from 1 November.

Emirates has announced it will bring forward its Perth A380 services one month early, to 1 November 2022, expanding its current capacity with the addition of more than 160 seats per day.

Initially scheduled for a 1 December return, the Emirates A380 scheduled to operate on a daily basis to Perth will offer more than 500 seats each way.

EK420 will depart Dubai at 02:45 and arrive in Perth at 17:20 the same day while EK421 will depart from Perth at 22:20 and arrive in Dubai at 05:25 the next day. The daily A380 service will replace the current Boeing 777-300ER operation between Perth and Dubai.

“Due to the consistently high demand for international travel out of Western Australia, we are thrilled that Perth will be joining our A380 network earlier than planned, which comes right as we proudly celebrate 20 years of flying to the city,” Emirates divisional vice president Australasia  Barry Brown said.

Since its inaugural flight to Perth in 2002, the airline has flown nearly 6 million passengers between Perth and its Dubai hub.

“We would like to thank our Western Australian passengers for their loyalty. We are excited that from November, they will be able to enjoy our flagship A380’s signature amenities, industry-leading products and generous space across all classes once again.”

In Australia, Emirates also operates its flagship A380 aircraft with double daily services to both Sydney and Melbourne, and a daily service to Brisbane.
