Emirates announced today to launch twice daily A380 flights to Muscat, Oman.
The A380 on EK 862/863 and EK864/865 to and from Muscat International Airport (MCT) will commence from 1 July 2019.
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, and reaffirmed the airport’s infrastructure readiness to handle double-decker operations.
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.
Passengers travelling across all three classes will enjoy the airline’s award-winning inflight entertainment system, ice, offering more than 4,000 channels of entertainment, and savour regionally inspired meals.
