Emirates to use A380 for Glasgow when Dubai runway shuts

Middle Eastern carrier Emirates is to offset capacity disruption caused by Dubai runway closure by deploying Airbus A380s on its Glasgow route.

The airline serves Glasgow twice-daily with Boeing 777-300ERs.

But it states that the closure of Dubai’s southern runway 12R/30L will disrupt the service, owing to capacity limitations.

Emirates says it will counter the impact by offering a daily service instead with 489-seat A380s. This will commence on 16 April next year and run to 31 May, following which the twice-daily 777 operation will be restored.
