Middle Eastern carrier Emirates is to open an Airbus A380 service to London Gatwick from the end of March 2014.

The Dubai-based airline will use the 489-seat version of the aircraft to replace the Boeing 777-300ER on its EK9 and EK10 service.

Emirates says the daily A380 connection will show that Gatwick remains a "strategic gateway" for the airline.

Its new operation will begin on 30 March.
