Emirates Airlines to relaunch Airbus A380 flights to Birmingham in 2023
Emirates Airlines will again use an Airbus A380 between Dubai and Birmingham from July 2023. This will make Birmingham the fourth UK airport to receive an Airbus A380 from the company since the end of the Covid-19 pandemic. The daily flight offered by the Emirati company will include an Airbus A380 that can accommodate 58 passengers in Business class and 557 in Economy.
Departures will be scheduled at 7:40 a.m. and arrive at 12:25 p.m., while return flights will leave England at 2:20 p.m. arriving the following day at 12:25 a.m. The second daily rotation will continue to be operated using a two-class Boeing 777-300ER. Emirates has no competitor on this route, which has not been relaunched by Qatar Airways from Doha since the end of the Covid-19 pandemic. Emirates Airbus A380s are already back in London (Heathrow and Gatwick) and Manchester.
Emirates airline offered two daily Airbus A380 flights to Birmingham before the Covid-19 pandemic
Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, the airline offered two daily return flights using an Airbus A380 to Birmingham. This destination was inaugurated in December 2000 and welcomed the company’s Airbus A380 from March 2016. The route was suspended in March 2020, but was reopened in September of the same year with the use of a Boeing 777-300ER. At the beginning of December 2022, Emirates served the United Kingdom with 119 weekly flights to seven airports: London (Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted), Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle and Glasgow.
