Airbus A380—world’s largest passenger plane
Emirates was the second airline to operate the Airbus A380-800 aircraft—the world’s largest with a capacity of 853 passengers—and was rated in the top five at the World Airline Awards 2017. Not a surprise as this airline continues to wow travellers with its 2,500-channel ICE (“Information, Entertainment, Communication”) system, enviably leg room and storage, first-class meals made from locally sourced ingredients, and award-winning wines. Larger planes makes air travel more sustainable: newer engines have lower noise and environmental pollution levels, and the company continues to minimise environmental impact with its sustainability initiatives.
All-inclusive Business Class fares from Hong Kong start at HKD20,370 to Europe; HKD4,080 to Asia; HKD24,250 to the Middle East; HKD26,780 to Africa; and HKD38,920 to South America. Economy Class fares start at HKD3,280 to Europe; HKD970 to Asia; HKD3,280 to the Middle East; HKD4,170 to Africa; and HKD10,630 to South America.
Emirates currently operates A380 flights to 48 destinations—almost one-third of its global network. Since 2008, Emirates has flown over 80 million passengers on its A380 fleet.
On the Emirates A380, First and Business Class passengers can socialise in the luxurious on-board lounge, featuring a fully stocked bar and a selection of canapés on the upper deck of the aircraft. First Class passengers can relax in one of 14 flat-bed, massage-equipped Private Suites and enjoy exclusive use of on-board shower spas to refresh and rejuvenate during their flight experience. Business Class passengers can relax in seats that convert to flat beds up to 87 inches (two metres) long, whilst those travelling in Economy Class can stretch out in seats with a pitch of up to 33 inches. Guests can also enjoy up to 20MB free Wi-Fi to stay in touch with family and friends during flights.
Just don’t tell your boss or you may be inclined to work instead of stretching out and relaxing!
From Hong Kong, Emirates operates four daily flights to Dubai, which includes 21 weekly flights on Emirates’ state-of-the-art A380 aircraft, altogether connecting customers seamlessly to over 150 destinations worldwide.
Emirates will begin double daily A380 services to Madrid (Spain) on September 1, 2017, Moscow (Russia) on October 1, 2017, and Birmingham (UK) on October 29, 2017, allowing passengers travelling between Hong Kong and these cities even more options and flexibility. Emirates is considered excellent value for money, and this special offer to celebrate the airline’s 100th A380 only proves the airline’s commitment to offering travellers the best flying experience ever.
