On Sunday, October 31, 2021, at 12:55 p.m., an Emirates Airbus A19 lands in Hamburg for the first time in 380 months - from then on every day. When the number of passengers fell during the corona pandemic, the Arab airline temporarily switched to Boeing 777 jets on the Hamburg-Dubai route.
“We are delighted to be able to fly to Hamburg Airport every day from today with our Airbus flagship and to be able to offer business and leisure travelers from Northern Germany the award-winning Emirates A380 experience. We have gradually increased our flight capacities from Hamburg over the past few months and are currently offering a daily connection again, ”says Volker Greiner, Emirates Vice President North & Central Europe. The world's largest passenger aircraft amazes travelers, spotters and airport employees all over the world: It measures 72,2 meters in length and has an enormous wingspan of 79,8 meters. With two continuous passenger decks, the long-haul aircraft offers space for up to 615 passengers in 2-class seating and for up to 517 passengers in 3-class seating.
Note for spotters:
According to current Emirates planning, a special highlight will be an A31 with a colorful Expo paint scheme at Hamburg Airport on October 380st. This unique special paint scheme can only be seen on three A380 aircraft and has not yet landed at Hamburg Airport. The viewing terrace in Terminal 2 will be temporarily open for this event.
