Emirates launched world's shortest A380 route as of July 16, 2014.
The once daily A380 service between Dubai and Kuwait City lasts in 1 hour 45 minutes.
It was 16 July 1989 when Emirates began flights between Dubai and Kuwait, and the airline now serves the route five times daily with a combination of Boeing and Airbus aircraft.
“We would like to express our special thanks to the State of Kuwait, the Aviation Authorities and Kuwait International Airport for their continued support over the past 25 years and for allowing us to bring the A380 into their country. This is a tremendous opportunity for customers travelling to and from Kuwait to enjoy the pride of the Emirates fleet,” said Sheikh Majid Al Mualla, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Centre.
The Emirates A380 is like no other. Passengers travelling in First Class can step out of their Private Suites and visit one of two Onboard Shower Spas where they can freshen up with a shower before landing. Both First and Business Class passengers can also chat over drinks and delicious snacks in an Onboard Lounge.
Throughout all cabin classes, passengers have access to Wifi, the award winning ice entertainment system and gourmet chef prepared cuisine, served by multi-national cabin crew – all contributing to Emirates being named by Skytrax as the ‘World’s Best Airline.’
The Emirates A380 on the Kuwait route will offer 14 First Class Private Suites, 76 flat-bed seats in Business Class and 399 seats in a quiet and spacious Economy Class.
