On Tuesday (September 12, 2023), Emirates announced that they will upguage their third daily flight between Dubai and Sydney to an Airbus A380 super jumbo jet from November 4, 2023, adding around 2,000 seats on the route weekly. The three-class 489-passenger A380 will replace the Boeing 777-300ER currently operating flights EK 416/417, and features Emirates’ latest Premium Economy cabin. Emirates currently operates 63 weekly flights to Australia, offering nearly 56,000 seats to and from four major gateways. Melbourne and Perth are served three times daily, while Brisbane is served twice daily. Emirates has also reintroduced service between Melbourne and Singapore, as well as between Sydney and Christchurch.

The third daily A380 flight to Sydney will depart Dubai at 21:30 and will arrive in Sydney at 18:20, while the return flight takes off from Sydney at 21:10 and arrives back in Dubai at 04:30 (all times local).

Additionally, when Emirates introduces the Airbus A350 in summer 2024, the carrier plans on serving more long-haul destinations, such as Adelaide. The airline continues to expand the deployment of their popular flagship A380 to meet global demand. Currently, Emirates offers double-decker super jumbo service to more than 50 destinations, and plans on offering A380 service to even more destinations in the coming months.
