Emirates to offer its A380 service on Dubai-Bangkok route

With the launch of the A380 service on November 28, Emirates will offer three daily services to passengers travelling to and from Bangkok


Dubai carrier Emirates has said that its A380 service will return to Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport from November 28.

The daily A380 service to Bangkok, flight EK372, will depart Dubai daily at 9.30am, arriving in Bangkok at 6.40pm. Flight EK373 is scheduled to depart Bangkok at 8.35pm to arrive in Dubai at 12.50am the next day. All times are local, the carrier said.

The Emirates A380 aircraft will offer seats in first, business and economy class, and will complement the carrier’s existing services, which include EK384/385, also operating on a daily basis with a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration, in addition to its five weekly flights to Bangkok via Phuket, operating as EK378/379, which is set to increase its frequency to daily from December 1.

The additional flight to be operated by the A380 aircraft on the Dubai-Bangkok route and additional services scheduled for its flight via Phuket will provide more than 8,600 additional seats weekly to accommodate the rise in inbound and outbound passenger traffic for Bangkok.

Earlier this month, Thailand lifted restrictions for non-Thai nationals, facilitating tourism for vaccinated travellers from over 60 countries. Passengers from non-exempted countries can also enjoy travelling to Thailand without quarantine, subject to a negative result on a PCR test to be conducted on arrival in Bangkok and a mandatory test to be taken on day six or seven.

In line with the continued easing of travel restrictions around the world, Emirates has been deploying its A380 aircraft to an expanded list of destinations, currently standing at 25 cities across six continents. By the end of December, the number of cities that the aircraft will serve will be scaled up to 28.

The airline’s total fleet of A380s will reach 118 by year-end, including six aircraft equipped with premium economy seats in a 4-class configuration.
