Emirates launches its longest A380 flight

Emirates launched its longest A380 service to Los Angeles yesterday. The landmark flight, crossing the Russian Federation, the North Pole and Eastern Canada, has a published duration of 16 hours 20 minutes. “Bringing the glamorous A380 set of wings to the City of Angels seemed like a natural fit as this aircraft mirrors the luxury of the Hollywood lifestyle,” said Hubert Frach, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations West.

The airline started flying to Los Angeles in 2008 with the Boeing 777-200LR. The introduction of the 489-seat A380 service, powered by US made GE GP7200 engines, is a direct response to demand with over one million passengers travelling between Los Angeles and Dubai so far. Emirates 23rd A380 service will operate daily as EK 215 departing Dubai at 0820hrs and arriving at Los Angeles International Airport at 1250hrs the same day. The return flight, EK 216, departs Los Angeles at 1600hrs and arrives in Dubai at 1950hrs the following day.
