Emirates’ A380 arrives in Boston and Amman

Posted 3 June 2019 · Add Comment

Emirates’ first scheduled A380 services have just touched down in Boston and Amman for the summer season peak.

 

The first scheduled A380 service landed in Amman on 1 June at 1555hrs local time and the second A380 service from Dubai to Boston landed at 1350hrs local time. Led by Captain Arif Al Reyami and Jordanian First Officer Laith Saudi, the A380 Amman service was greeted by a traditional water cannon salute.

Emirates will operate its A380 aircraft to and from Amman until 26 October to cater to the increased demand for travel during the peak summer period. The airline has adjusted its schedule on one of its three daily flights (EK 903/904) with the A380. Emirates A380 operations to Boston also coincide with high customer demand during the peak summer and winter travel season and will see overall capacity increase around 45% between 1 June to 30 September 2019 and 1 December 2019 to 31 January 2020. The move to deploy the popular A380 on both routes demonstrates the airline’s flexibility to optimise the usage of its fleet to cater to passenger demand within its network.

Emirates has been flying to Jordan for over 33 years, and has carried over 5 million passengers to and from Amman. Emirates has been serving Boston since 2014, consistently growing passenger demand over the past five years to and through Dubai. With the A380 being introduced for the summer, travellers have more choice to explore unique A380 destinations on the Emirates network, as well as experience the ultimate in travel comfort on the airline’s flagship aircraft.

The Emirates A380 flying to Amman is set in a three-class configuration, and will have 427 seats in Economy Class on the lower deck over the months of June and July, 76 flat-bed Business Class seats and 14 luxurious First Class Suites. First and Business Class customers can catch up, network and enjoy an extensive range of beverages and delicacies in the Onboard Lounge.

The Emirates A380 flying to Boston is also set in a three class cabin configuration, offering 14 private suites in First Class, 76 seats in Business Class, and 426 spacious seats in Economy Class. First Class passengers can relax and revitalise in one of the two A380 Shower Spas, and First and Business Class passengers are welcome in the Onboard Lounge to enjoy canapés and beverages prepared by the onboard bartender.
