Emirates to add more A380 flights from Manchester
UAE carrier Emirates has today announced plans to increase flight frequencies from Manchester next month.
It will operate its popular A380 aircraft six times a week from December 2.
Emirates’ services to Manchester will increase from the current eight-a-week to 10 flights per week from December 1, of which six will be served by an Emirates A380 and four with a Boeing 777-300ER.
The announcement represents a significant expansion of Emirates services to the UK, following the recent establishment of the UK-UAE air travel corridor which has led to increased demand.
Under the air travel corridor, travellers entering the UK from the UAE will no longer be required to quarantine, which is a boon for travellers, and speaks to the UAE’s rigorous and effective pandemic response.
In the other direction, UK travellers heading to Dubai can opt to do their COVID-19 PCR tests 96 hours in advance of their flight, or to do the test on arrival in Dubai, adding to the ease of travel.
The airline has also announced it will deploy additional A380 services to Moscow from the current two-a-week, to a daily service from November 25.
Emirates’ enhanced services to Moscow will also meet increased demand from travellers seeking to holiday in Dubai, or at popular island destinations within easy reach through Dubai, such as the Maldives.
