EMIRATES: 2 x daily A380 flights Sydney/Dubai to recommence 1 March 2022

EMIRATES: 2 x daily A380 flights Sydney/Dubai to recommence 1 March 2022

One day British Airways is returning to Australia, and the next, Emirates are upping their flights.

The Dubai based airline is currently running a single A380 service to Sydney but will double that a week after Australia borders re-open on 21 February, returning to its pre-pandemic frequency to and from Sydney. We won’t be seeing the return of the B777-300 flight until June when EK412 will arrive before continuing on to Christchurch NZ, returning as EK413, until June 2022.

Flights arrivals and departures

The A380 flights featuring 14 first-class suites, 2 showers, 76 business class, 399 economy seats and a cocktail bar are detailed below:

  • EK414: Dubai-Sydney, 02:00-22:30
  • EK412: Dubai-Sydney, 10:15-07:00+1
  • EK415: Sydney-Dubai, 06:00-13:20
  • EK413: Sydney-Dubai, 21:45-05:15+1

By March, Emirates will be running a total of 31 weekly flights into Australia, Prior to the Pandemic, Emirates was running more than twice that number at 76 flights per week:

  • Dubai to Brisbane 1 x daily B777-300ER
  • Dubai to Melbourne 1 x daily A380
  • Dubai to Perth: 3 x weekly B777-300ER
  • Dubai to Sydney: 2 x daily A380

The Perth frequency is low due to the state’s closed borders. Emirates used to fly into Adelaide as well, but there is nothing scheduled on this route in 2022 currently.

2PAXfly Takeout

The last time I travelled on Emirates was to and from Bangkok in Business Class – a service that has been discontinued.

Emirates ramping up its services to Australia is great. It certainly means that currently, aviation traffic is in recovery. How long that will be the case before the next phase/variant of the virus appears, no one knows.

Emirates return will put some competition back into the market, so we should see some effects on pricing.

Is anyone planning a trip out of Australia on Emirates?
