Emirates' A380 to serve Paris from Dec 29

(MENAFN - Alrroya) An Emirates' A380 will serve Paris from December 29, one month earlier than planned. The airline had previously announced that the super-jumbo would head to Paris Charles de Gaulle from February 1 next year, but an operational review, coupled with demand on the route, has led to an earlier introduction. The 489-seat aircraft will be incorporated into Emirates' double daily flights to Paris. It will initially service three of the morning departures from Dubai, becoming daily from January 17. Earlier this month, Emirates bucked the trend in the aviation industry by posting a sizeable profit increase for its operations in the April-September period of the current financial year. During this period, the airline announced a profit of Dh752 million ($ 205 million) and, significantly, an 18 per cent increase in passengers. The growth in passengers and earnings has been mirrored in the French market and has been a major consideration in the earlier introduction of the A380 onto the Paris route.
