Emirates at the weekend launched two new daily A380 services – Dubai to Guangzhou, China, and Dubai to Moscow, Russia.

Flight EK362, which departed Dubai, landed at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport on schedule Saturday evening. Arriving a few hours later into Moscow’s Domodedovo International Airport was flight EK131. Both Emirates A380-800s were operated in a three-class configuration and carried media delegates who were specially invited to experience the aircraft on the launch flights.

Many of the features of Emirates’ flagship aircraft are unique offerings in the respective countries for travellers. The double-decker aircraft offers passengers 14 private suites in First Class and 76 fully flat-bed mini-pods in Business Class on the upper deck. The upper deck is also home to the signature onboard shower spas for first-class passengers and the Emirates onboard lounge, where first-class and business-class passengers can socialise at 40,000 feet. The entire main deck is dedicated to Emirates’ spacious and comfortable Economy Class with generous leg room.

Moscow and Guangzhou join more than 40 Emirates A380 destination cities, providing travellers on the routes with the airline’s best-in-class onboard product and renowned service.
