Emirates Announces A380 Flight for Prague-Dubai Anniversary
Watershed moment commemorates continued success in the Czech Republic
Emirates Airline announced recently that it will operate a one-off A380 flight to Prague on 1 July 2015 in celebration of five successful years in the Czech Republic.
The Prague-Dubai route has experienced great success since its inaugural flight on 1 July 2010, and has since received two upgrades to allow for higher capacities and services for passengers. The route is currently served by a Boeing 777-300ER, and the special Airbus A380 flight, which has an immense capacity of 515 passengers, will serve as a symbolic nod to the sustained demand from Czech passengers.
“The arrival of the A380 to Prague is set to be a landmark event, and we are delighted to be able to provide our Czech customers with an opportunity to experience this iconic aircraft,” said Bořivoj Trejbal, Emirates’ Country Manager for Czech Republic. “Emirates currently has 60 A380s, and we have an additional 80 on order, which makes us the world’s largest operator of this aircraft.
Important to Czech passengers are Emirates 13 “unique” one-stop connections via Dubai – the fifth highest amount of all EU countries. Without Emirates, passengers travelling to cities in destinations such as the Seychelles, Thailand, Australia, and South Africa would have a minimum of two layovers.
The one-off A380 flight will operate as EK 139, departing Dubai at 0905hrs and arriving in Prague at 1325hrs. The return leg will operate as EK 140, departing Prague at 1705hrs and arriving in Dubai at 0050hrs the following day.
