The Emirates A380 aircraft is also operating daily flights to Melbourne, having been upgraded recently from the Boeing 777-300ER from February 1, 2022. The upgrade to the A380 aircraft allows a 50% additional capacity to serve anticipated demand arising from the re-opening of Australia’s international borders.
In addition to the capitals of New South Wales and Victoria, Emirates also provides passenger services to Brisbane with five weekly flights as well as three flights per week to Perth, both with the airline’s Boeing 777-300ER.
