On Tuesday (January 9, 2024), Emirates announced that from February 21st through March 30, 2024, their route between Dubai and Vienna will be upgauged from a Boeing 777-300ER to a flagship Airbus A380 super jumbo.  Flight EK127 departs Dubai at 08:55 and arrives in Vienna at 12:25, while the return flight, EK128, departs the Austrian capital at 15:10 and touches down back in Dubai at 23:40 (all times local). 

In Tuesday’s announcement, Emirates’ Manager for Austria, Elisabeth Zauner, said,

“The deployment of our A380 until the end of the winter schedule is a great milestone for us, which emphasises the importance of Vienna as a destination and as a departure point. We naturally hope that our flagship will return permanently in the future.” 

This is the first time Emirates will deploy the A380 on the Dubai-Vienna route since August 2022.  The evening flights EK126 and EK125 will continue to operate as usual with a Boeing 777-300ER.  Emirates’ flagship Airbus A380s feature 14 First Class, 76 Business Class and 429 Economy Class seats, expanding capacity on each flight by nearly 40 percent. Emirates is 

the world’s largest Airbus A380 operator with 116 of the type currently in their fleet.  Nearly 90 A380s are now in service across the carrier’s global network, including service to popular destinations such as Bangkok, Mauritius, Denpasar/Bali and Sydney.
