Emirates Announces Dramatic Changes to Airbus A380 Routes

Emirates has made significant adjustments to its Airbus A380 flight timetables. On some routes, there will be more A380 flights, while on others, the double-decker aircraft will arrive earlier than expected. Simultaneously, the choice has been made to discontinue A380 flights to China, which will free up funds for these and other schedule modifications.The following table details positive revisions on certain routes based on the carrier's most recent submission of a weekend schedule to Cirium.

On March 31, the Beijing Capital Daily A380 will take the place of the 777-300ER, with the 777-300ER operating the second daily trip.

777-300ER double daily; no A380


On March 31, a daily A380 will take the place of a 777-300ER.

The 777-300ER will run every day; the A380 won't

Shanghai Pudong

Daily A380 and Daily 777-300ER, starting on March 31st, will become Double Daily A380.

On February 20, the A380 will be phased out and the route will be exclusively operated by 777s

One particularly interesting development is related to Dulles, Washington. According to Emirates' December 2023 timetable, the A380 was originally scheduled to return on October 1st, 2024. However, the most recent plan places the double-decker aircraft on a daily basis by March 31st, 2024, which coincides with the changeover to summer schedules for northern airlines. This update will likely be implemented in the next two months.

On the other hand, mainland China will no longer be served by Emirates' A380 on its passenger route network, indicating a significant change that may have been brought about by China's more gradual economic recovery and wider economic difficulties. It should be noted that these plans could change in the future.

According to the latest information available as of January 29th, Emirates intends to reduce the number of destinations it serves with the A380 from 56 in July 2019 to 48 in July. There will be 76 daily departures from Dubai during the busiest summer month, with 13 of those departing from the UK. During this time of great demand, Emirates will operate A380s in 30 different countries.
