Emirates to fly the A380 into BHX!

As of 27/03/16, the lunchtime EK39/40 rotation will be operated by an Airbus A380. This will be the first regular A380 service to Birmingham.

Emirates currently operate 3 daily 777 flights to Dubai. The A380 has visited BHX once before, in 2009, when Emirates flew it in to celebrate the airports 70th anniversary and opening of the international pier. This was a one off, and due to runway length at the time, payload restricted. Since then, there have been alterations to stands, taxiways and of course the runway has been extended, meaning the A380 can now operate regularly into BHX.
