With the use of the aircraft, a capacity increase of 20 percent can be offered; the aircraft can carry 519 passengers.

Julian Jäger, Joint CEO of Vienna Airport, is enthusiastic about the return of the Emirates A380: “I am pleased that the Emirates A380 will be used again in regular operations to Vienna. The largest passenger aircraft in the world is a highlight for all travelers and a great asset to Vienna Airport. The associated capacity expansion is a further sign of strengthening connections to the Near and Middle East and is good for tourism to and from Austria.”
