On Sunday, October 30, Emirates has announced that it will be using the A380 on one of the nine daily flights between Dubai and Doha from December 1st, 2016.
Emirates recently boosted its services to Doha with two additional flights, taking its total operations to nine daily services and making it the most served destination in the airline’s network.
Demand has been steadily increasing between Dubai and Doha, with over 700,000 passengers carried since January of this year alone. Once launched, Doha will be Emirates’ 45th A380 destination to be served by the flagship aircraft. The upgrade to the A380 will provide Emirates the increased ability to serve growing demand for travel out of Doha.
