To meet passenger demand during summer peak season
Emirates will operate its A380 aircraft to and from Amman between 1st June and 26th October 2019, in response to increased demand for travel during the summer period.
This adjustment will see the airline operate one of its three daily flights on the route (EK 903/904) with its flagship A380.
This will be the first time that Emirates will operate a scheduled A380 service to Amman, following the historic one-off A380 flight operated in September 2016.
Adil Al Ghaith, Emirates’ Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations for Gulf, Middle East & Iran commented on the A380 deployment to Amman: “Jordan has been a strategically important market in this region for Emirates for a long time.
“The upgrade to an A380 service to Amman during the peak summer period is in line with our strategy to better serve seasonal peaks, and strengthen our presence in key markets by providing an industry-leading experience for our customers, and offering them a seamless A380 experience via Dubai to major destinations around the world.”
During this period, passengers departing from Amman will have the opportunity to experience the Emirates A380 to Dubai and onward to an extensive network of almost 50 A380 destinations, including a number of leisure and business cities popular with Jordanians like Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong, London, Paris, Sydney, New York, Los Angeles, among others.
From 01 June to 26 October 2019, A380 flight EK 903 will depart Dubai at 1400hrs and arrive in Amman at 1555hrs, while the return A380 flight, EK 904 will leave Amman at 1800hrs, arriving in Dubai at 2200hrs.
The Emirates A380 flying to Amman will be set in a three-class configuration, with 427 generously pitched seats in Economy Class on the lower deck, 76 flat-bed seats in Business Class and 14 First Class Private Suites on the upper deck.
Emirates has been flying to Jordan for 33 years, and has carried over 5.5 million passengers to and from Amman.
During the financial year 2019/20, Emirates will take delivery of six new Airbus A380 aircraft. Emirates currently has 109 A380s in service and 53 pending delivery, more than any other airline globally.
In order to meet increased seasonal passenger demand Emirates will be also be introducing its Airbus A380 aircraft to Boston in the United States and Glasgow in the UK.
