Emirates to launch Airbus A380 on its flights to Bangkok from Toronto

Emirates Airlines will introduce the double-decker Airbus A380 aircraft on its flights to Bangkok and Toronto from June 1st.

Emirates Airlines will introduce the double-decker Airbus A380 aircraft on its flights to Bangkok and Toronto from June 1st.

The news comes after the A380 was successfully launched in Sydney and Auckland in February.

Tim Clark, Emirates’ president, said he was "extremely pleased" that the aircraft would operate on the flights to Toronto and the Thai capital.

"Our Toronto route has had consistently high demand since the thrice weekly service was launched two years ago," he said.

"The A380 will allow Emirates to address some of the unmet need in Toronto, while in Bangkok the A380 will help support the Thai government’s new tourism initiatives."

Capacity on the routes will increase by around 30 percent following the introduction of the A380.

Among the aircraft’s features are onboard shower spas in the first class cabin, while the onboard lounge available to first and business class passengers includes a bar offering a number of beverages and canapes.

Earlier this month Emirates was unveiled as FIFA’s Global Tour Operator for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
