Starting on 1 December, Emirates will restore non-stop A380 service between Auckland and Kuala Lumpur. As of now, the airline operates Boeing 777-300ERs from Kuala Lumpur to Auckland. The A380 flights will delink both cities and provide direct services to and from Dubai. Customers will benefit from enhanced flexibility and more seat availability with the airline’s updated schedule. Also, Emirates’ network will be expanded with the newly introduced services. Delinking of services will reduce transit times and result in faster connections throughout Europe, the Middle East, and South Asia.
In addition to being the longest non-stop scheduled service in the world, the Emirates non-stop service between Dubai and Auckland will also reclaim its title as the longest route on the Emirates network. Emirates’ direct flight EK448 departs Dubai at 10:05 and arrives in Auckland at 11:05 the next day. The return flight leaves Auckland at 21:15 and arrives in Dubai at 05:25 the following morning. The times listed are local.
EK 346, Emirates’ A380 service to Kuala Lumpur, departs Dubai at 3:30 and lands at 14:35. At 01:45, EK 343 will depart Kuala Lumpur and arrive in Dubai at 05:05. With the reintroduction of the airline’s flagship A380 to Auckland and Kuala Lumpur, tourists will have more options to explore these exciting destinations. In addition, travelers will be able to experience all the A380’s features.
