Emirates recently announced its intent to launch of a daily A380 service to Copenhagen.
The new service will come into effect as of 1 December 2015 and it will be the first in Scandinavia to have this service.
The aircraft will offer a two-class configuration with a total capacity of 615 passengers; 58 seats in business class and 557 seats in economy. With the new configuration, the airline will offer a total of 8,610 seats a week between Copenhagen and Dubai.
“After launching the route with an A330, we witnessed growing demand for flights to and from Copenhagen, forcing us to deploy the larger 777 after only six months. Today, based on strong load factors, we are happy to further up-gauge to the A380,” said Sir Tim Clark, president, Emirates Airline.
Since the launch in August 2011, nearly 800,000 passengers have travelled with Emirates on the Copenhagen-Dubai route.
