Emirates upgrades Brisbane flights to A380, adds second daily to Perth


Emirates has announced that it is to boost its operations to two Australian cities with an upgrade to an A380 and a reinstatement of a second daily flight. 

Beginning October 2024, the Dubai-based carrier will upgrade its second daily flight between Dubai International Airport (DXB) and Brisbane Airport (BNE) – flight numbers EK430/431 – to its signature A380 aircraft.

The A380 Brisbane service will operate on the following schedule:

EK430: depart Dubai 02:30 local time, arrive in Brisbane 22:00 local time

EK431: depart Brisbane 01:55 local time, arrive in Dubai at 10:05 local time

Starting December 1, 2024, Emirates will resume its second daily flight to Perth International Airport (PER) using the airline’s fleet of Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

It will operate on the following schedule:

EK424: depart Dubai at 09:15 local time, arrive in Perth at 00:05 the following day. 

EK425: depart Perth at 06:00 local time, arrive Dubai at 13:10 

 “We’re pleased to offer more choices and opportunities for Australians traveling from Brisbane and Perth through the ramp up of our operations. It’s a demonstration of the importance of both gateways for tourism and trade, and Emirates’ commitment to ensure convenient schedules and comfortable connections to and through Dubai,” Barry Brown, Divisional Vice President Australasia at Emirates said in a statement.

Brown continued: “Whether it’s the advantage of seamless afternoon connections from Dubai to a wealth of destinations across Europe on the second Perth flight, or a full A380 experience to and from Brisbane to close to 50 cities served by our flagship, we’re creating access to diverse opportunities for business, leisure, culture, and more.”
