AIR travellers will be able to experience Emirates Airline’s state-of-the-art A380 aircraft for the first time on 1 August, when the airline launches its first A380 commercial service from Dubai to New York, JFK. 

The 14-hour non-stop flight will also be the first-ever commercial A380 service to The Americas.

HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, chairman and chief executive, Emirates Airlines & Group, said: “The Americas represent a key focus area in Emirates’ route development plans, and we are delighted to be the first airline to launch commercial A380 services to the continent.

"We are confident that Emirates’ customers travelling to and from North America will welcome the A380’s additional space and capacity, as well as our luxurious onboard amenities, which will provide a very high quality travel experience previously associated only with private jets.”
