Emirates, one of the world’s fastest growing airlines, will operate the first ever A380 scheduled service into Athens. Touching down at Athens International Airport on Oct. 26 will mark a significant milestone for Emirates and its operations in Greece.
“On June 1996, Emirates launched our inaugural flight to Greece. Some 16 years later we will operate our award-winning A380 service into Athens International Airport proving the company’s commitment to Greece,” said Richard Jewsbury, Senior Vice President Commercial Europe and Russian Federation.
“Our customers in Athens are eager to try our A380 services and we have worked closely with the local authorities to make this possible. Although we have no immediate plans to operate an A380 on the route permanently, we remain dedicated to providing customers in Athens with convenient flight and onward connection times through our Dubai hub,” said Jewsbury.
