Barcelona gets the one-off Emirates A380


Emirates’ A38 touched down in Barcelona – El Prat Airport for the first time in a one-off service. 

This is the first ever scheduled service of an Emirates A380 to Spain and the A380 service will also operate on 1 March  2013.

“Emirates is currently operating two one-off Airbus A380 services between Dubai and Barcelona after increased demand by customers. We have witnessed a strong presence in Spain since commencing operations in 2010. Although, we have no immediate plans to operate an A380 on the route in the near future,” said Richard Jewsbury Senior Vice President Commercial Operations, Europe and the Russian Federation.

In its first seven months of operations, Emirates has carried over 113,000 passengers to and from Barcelona. The airline services the Barcelona route with a 777-300ER offering 360 seats in a three-class configuration.
