Emirates is upgrading its second daily flight between Dubai and Brisbane to a double-decker A380 from 1 October and reintroducing a second daily service between Dubai and Perth from 1 December.
The UAE-based airline said the switch to the larger A380 on the Brisbane route would allow it to carry an extra 100,000 passengers a year between Queensland and Europe.
The relaunch of the Perth flights will add an additional 250,000 seats a year to Western Australia.
Through the upgraded A380 operation to Brisbane and the resumption of its second service to Perth, the airline will increase weekly capacity to Australia by 6,900 seats.
In a statement, Emirates said it was ‘further serving growing demand for international travel through Dubai and beyond to [its] global network of over 140 destinations’.
