Muscat will become Emirates’ shortest scheduled A380 flight, flying a distance of 340 kilometres each way.
The launch of the A380 flights will come exactly one year after the first deployment of a scheduled one-off A380 service that marked 25 years of operations to Oman.
The twice daily A380 services will replace EK 862/863 and EK 864/865.
Both A380s flying to Muscat will be operated in a three-class configuration, with 429 seats in Economy Class on the lower deck, as well as 76 flat-bed seats in Business Class and 14 First Class Private Suites on the upper deck.
Emirates has been flying to Oman since 1993, and today operates three daily services using the Boeing 777-300ER between Dubai and Muscat.
