Emirates continues to ramp up its operations in Australia with improved services to two major cities.

The airline has announced it will be upgrading its second daily flight between Dubai and Brisbane to an A380 starting from October 1.

The A380 will allow up to 100,000 extra passengers per year to travel between Queensland and Europe, which is Brisbane’s second busiest international destination.

In addition, Emirates will add a second daily service between Dubai and Perth operated by a Boeing 777-300ER starting from December 1. The additional service will deliver 250,000 seats per year on this very popular route.

“It’s a demonstration of the importance of both gateways for tourism and trade, and Emirates’ commitment to ensure convenient schedules and comfortable connections to and through Dubai,” said Barry Brown, Divisional Vice President Australasia at Emirates.

“The ramp up is also a testament to our commitment in enhancing global connectivity to our Australian gateways and supporting tourism and trade growth opportunities.”

Emirates currently serves Australia with 63 weekly flights to Brisbane, Perth, Sydney and Melbourne, operated by a mix of A380 and Boeing 777 aircraft transporting 56,000 passengers per week to and from these major cities.

The airline has recently announced doubling its Premium Economy offering on flights to Melbourne starting from February 1, adding to the two daily four-class A380 services to Sydney.
