Emirates A380 network expands to six cities
As the international market recovers, Emirates announced that it is adding one additional city to its Airbus A380 network.
On August 6, 2020, Emirates announced that it will return to Toronto, Canada with one of its Airbus A380 aircraft. Starting August 16, the Dubai-based airline will fly from its Dubai International Airport (DXB) hub to Toronto’s Pearson International Airport (YYZ). The airline plans to operate five weekly flights.
Toronto joins Amsterdam, Cairo, Paris, London and Guangzhou as cities served by Emirates’ Airbus A380 fleet. A favorite amongst its customers, according to the company’s press release, the Super Jumbo will return to more cities “in line with market demand and operational approvals,” reads the announcement.
On August 5, 2020, Emirates reportedly permanently ceased its flights from Dubai to Adelaide, Fort Lauderdale, Buenos Aires and Santiago de Chile via Rio De Janeiro. The Fort Lauderdale service was established for connections to & from Latin America back in 2016 due to a partnership between Emirates and JetBlue (JBLU).
Emirates aims to gradually expand its passenger services to 70 cities in August, returning to over 50% of its pre-pandemic destination network.
