Emirates introduces daily scheduled A380 services to Bahrain

Emirates will introduce the first scheduled Airbus A380 service to Bahrain during the month of June.

This is the first time an airline operates the double-decker on a regularly scheduled basis to the Kingdom, and demonstrates the operational readiness of the new airport to provide the necessary infrastructure to accommodate for an A380 service, the company said.

Flight EK 839/840, previously operated by a Boeing 777-300ER, has been upgraded to the flagship, the Emirates A380.

The change of aircraft will help meet growing demand to and from Bahrain during the summer, and underscores the airline’s commitment to make connections for travellers to and through Dubai even easier.

Emirates flight EK 837 will depart Dubai daily at 3:30 pm, arriving in Bahrain at 3:50pm. The return flight EK 840 leaves Bahrain at 5:50 pm, arriving in Dubai at 8 pm. The Emirates A380 aircraft will operate daily, in addition to an earlier morning service by a Boeing 777-300ER.

The Emirates Airbus A380 aircraft serving the Dubai-Bahrain route offers a total of 507 seats in a three-class configuration, with 417 seats in Economy Class, 76 seats in Business and 14 First Class Private Suites.
