Emirates Airline adds new Airbus A380 service between Dubai and Johannesburg

Emirates Airline has introduced an additional Airbus A380 service to Johannesburg replacing the previous Boeing 777 aircraft on the same route. Effective from 1st December, EK762 (JNB-DXB) and EK761 (DXB-JNB) are now served by the flagship A380 aircraft.

As the result of deployment of the second A380 to Johannesburg, there will be a 14% increase in seat capacity. The move is to support the growing demand in travels to South Africa.
