Emirates to Operate Airbus A380 Dubai-Casablanca Daily Flights
The iconic double decker 491-seat aircraft will operate daily flights to Morocco replacing the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft currently used on the Dubai-Casablanca route.
The company said in a statement that the switch to A380 will offer a total of 1834 additional seats per week, meeting a growing demand from travelers on the route.
The statement adds that Casablanca has become one of Emirates’ most popular destinations and has seen steady growth since it was launched in March 2002.
In 2015, the airline carried nearly 260,000 passengers and more than 10,000 tons of cargo between Casablanca and Dubai.
The launch of the A380 flights will enable travelers from Casablanca to connect to onward destinations in the Emirates network, particularly in the GCC countries, east Asia and Australia, with many cities, such as Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Doha, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth also being served by the A380.
