Emirates A380 returns to Houston

Posted 21 February 2018 · Add Comment

Emirates will resume its flagship A380 service between Houston and Dubai from 1 June 2018.

This follows the airline’s recent adjustments to its US services with the launch of a new non-stop Dubai-Newark service from 1 June 2018 and the resumption of daily services to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando from 25 March 2018.

Emirates celebrated 10 years of service to Houston in December 2017, and has carried nearly 2 million passengers since its inaugural flight in December 2007. Services to Houston were upguaged to an A380 in December 2014, but as part of Emirates’ fleet optimization, the decision was made in July 2016 to operate the route with a Boeing 777-300ER.
