Emirates to reintroduce A380 on Dubai-Casablanca route

Dubai-based airline Emirates has announced that it will reintroduce its A380 to Casablanca.

Starting April 15, the airline will replace the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft currently used between Dubai and Casablanca with the A380, to meet growing demand on the route, Emirates said in a statement.

The A380 service, operating as EK751 will depart Dubai at 7.30am, arriving in Casablanca at 12.55pm. The return EK 752 will take off from Casablanca at 2.45pm, arriving in Dubai at 1.15am the following day.

Emirates said that the “deployment to Morocco is a testament of the airline’s commitment to support inbound visitor arrivals as the country double downs its efforts to reinvigorate its tourism industry.”

Last year, Emirates enhanced its partnership with Royal Air Maroc to a codeshare, providing more travel options to customers of both airlines between Dubai and Casablanca.

The airline launched its Casablanca route in March 2002, while it has been operating to Morocco for over 20 years, and has carried more than 3.5 million passengers on the route.

The airline has been gradually accelerating the use of its A380 and currently deploys the aircraft to 40 destinations worldwide. Earlier this week, Emirates said that it would ramp up frequencies to Hong Kong, with a daily non-stop service operated by an A380, starting March 29.

By the end of this summer, the popular aircraft will be serving almost 50 destinations, which represents close to 90 per cent of the airline’s pre-pandemic A380 network.
