Emirates Upgrading Moscow Route

Emirates Upgrading Moscow Route

Emirates will serve its Moscow route with a double daily A380 service from August 1 this year.

This second A380 replaces the existing Boeing 777 operation on flight EK 133/134 and increases seat capacity on the route by 15%.

Moscow is one of several Europe destinations to which New Zealanders can fly all the way from Auckland by A380. Others include London, Manchester, Paris, Rome, Amsterdam and Zurich, with Barcelona being added to that list from next month.

All of Emirates’ three daily flights from Auckland to Dubai and beyond via Australia are operated by double-decker A380 aircraft.

“Since launching services between Dubai and Moscow on 1st July 2003, we have received a very positive response from Russian customers and trade partners to the Emirates product,” said Thierry Antinori, Emirates‘ Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer.

“Our Moscow service continues to grow in popularity, especially since the introduction of the first A380 on this route in December 2012. This second aircraft upgrade will help us meet the ever increasing demand, giving many more travellers the chance to experience our flagship A380 aircraft and all its comforts and features.”

Across its two decks, Emirates’ A380 will offer 399 seats in Economy Class, 76 lie-flat seats in Business Class and 14 luxury First Class Private Suites. Passengers travelling in First Class can freshen up in one of two on-board Shower Spas before joining fellow premium class travellers in the On-Board Lounge where they can enjoy complimentary beverages and canapés.

Passengers across all cabins can enjoy up to 1,600 channels of entertainment featuring the latest movies, TV shows and music from around the world alongside a range of games on the award-winning ice inflight entertainment system. They can also stay connected throughout the flight with high-speed Wi-Fi access and mobile phone and data services.

Passengers travelling on all Emirates flights benefit from a generous baggage allowance of 30kg in Economy Class, 40kg in Business Class and 50 kg in First Class.

The upgraded A380 service leaves Dubai as EK133 at 0935hrs, arriving at Domodedovo Airport at 1445hrs. It returns as EK134 leaving Moscow at 1755hrs landing at Dubai International Airport at 2255hrs.
