DALLAS-FORT WORTH - Dubai-based Emirates Airlines will begin using the 489-seat Emirates Airbus A380 on October 1, replacing the 266-seat Boeing 777 that the airline has been using since it started flying out of DFW International Airport in February 2012.
The two-story aircraft will make the 15-hour flight daily, and will make DFW International Airport the 29th airport in the world to service the Emirates’ A380 jets.
Flights from Dallas to Dubai will be among the longest that Emirates flies, second to Los Angeles. That’s a big reason why Emirates takes luxuries and amenities to another level with the A380.
Emirates won’t be the first airline to launch daily service with the A380, however. Qantas will start flying the A380 from DFW International Airport to Sidney in September.
