Emirates will return the Airbus A380 to Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport on November 28th.
The aircraft upgrade will aid the airline in meeting high passenger demand for inbound travel to the popular holiday destination.
The decision follows Thailand’s re-opening to international tourists who have been vaccinated against Covid-19.
The daily A380 flights will be operated as EK372/373, increasing capacity and frequency on its flights to Bangkok in response to the airline’s increased travel demand.
The deployment of the double-decker aircraft will supplement the existing services, EK384/385, which will also operate on a daily basis with a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration, as well as its five weekly flights to Bangkok via Phuket, which will increase to daily on December 1st.
Flight EK372, the daily A380 service to Bangkok, will depart Dubai at 09:30 and arrive in Bangkok at 18:40.
Flight EK373 is scheduled to depart Bangkok at 20:35 hours and arrive in Dubai at 00:50 hours the following day.
When the A380 service launches later this month, Emirates will offer three daily services to and from Bangkok, demonstrating its commitment to the country it has served for over three decades.
Thailand lifted restrictions for non-Thai nationals earlier this month, allowing vaccinated visitors from more than 60 countries to enter the country quarantine-free.
Passengers from non-exempt countries can travel to Thailand without being subjected to quarantine if a PCR test conducted on arrival in Bangkok yields a negative result. Additionally, they must take a mandatory test on day six or seven.
