Emirates to fly A380s to Paris

24 June 2009

Emirates has announced that it will use the A380 to serve its Dubai-Paris route from February 1st, 2010. Tim Clark, president of Emirates, said the move is being made because of 'ecnouraging sales' in and out of Paris Charles de Gaulle. 'Our plans to introduce this exceptional aircraft have been accelerated by almost a year which, in the current economic climate, is a major achievement,' he said in a statement. Emirates boasts the world's largest order of Airbus A380s with 5 in its fleet and a further 53 double-deckers to be delivered. They currently serve Toronto, London Heathrow, Bangkok, Sydney and Auckland.
