Emirates has commenced A380 flights to Prague, becoming the first and only airline to operate a superjumbo service to the Czech capital.

The Prague-Dubai route was launched on 1 July 2010 with a daily A330 service and Emirates has since carried over 1.1 million passengers between the two cities.

“We are pleased to add Prague too to our list of more than 40 A380 destination cities and introduce our innovative, best-in-class onboard product and renowned service to Czech customers,” said said Thierry Antinori, Emirates executive VP and CCO.

The route operates as EK139 and EK140, served by an A380 aircraft that can accommodate 519 passengers in a three-class configuration.
