Emirates confirms UK winter capacity boost

Emirates confirmed a boost in UK flying with more Airbus A380 flights to Dubai this winter.

A380s will be deployed four times from Heathrow from November 27 and six times a week from Manchester from December 2.

Birmingham and Glasgow frequency will also rise from four-a-week to daily services from November 27 and December 1 respectively.

Emirates’ Manchester services will rise from eight to 10 flights a week from December 1, including the six by A380 and four with a Boeing 777-300ER.

A twice-daily Heathrow A380 service and once a day Boeing 777 flight will become four daily A380 services from November 27.

The expansion follows the establishment of the UK-UAE air travel corridor which has led to increased demand.

UK travellers heading to Dubai can opt to take a Covid-19 PCR test 96 hours in advance of their flight, or take the test on arrival.
