Emirates, a Dubai-based airline, has made the decision to begin flying its iconic A380 aircraft to Bali (Indonesia) on June 1. This will be the firm’s first use of an A380 on this route.
A two-class Boeing 777-300ER now operates one of the two daily flights to this Indonesian city; the two-class A380 will take its place. Emirates will operate its maiden A380 flight, EK368, from Dubai International Airport (DXB) to Denpasar International Airport (DPS) at 3:25 AM and 4:35 PM respectively.
The departing flight from Bali will be EK369, which will arrive in Dubai at 12:45 AM. Bali is one of the most well-known tourist destinations in Southeast Asia, according to Adnan Kazim, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) of Emirates.
He claimed that this improvement shows their commitment to the travel and tourism industry. He stressed that they are confident in their ability to connect Dubai with other international locations, which will increase traffic to Indonesia and give tourists and business visitors more options.
Emirates began offering non-stop daily flights on the Jakarta-Bali route in 2015. Jakarta has been served by Emirates since 1992. Between Indonesia and Dubai, it has carried more over nine million passengers on almost 49,000 trips. Emirates offers a total of 28 weekly flights to Jakarta and Bali.
By the end of this summer, Emirates’ premium aircraft will likely serve about 50 destinations in addition to its current network of over 41 destinations.
