With the world's largest fleet of A380 aircraft, at 27 and another four to be delivered up to the end of 2012, Emirates continues to set the pace for A380 deployment. In the four years since the A380 has been in operation over 11.5 million passengers have flown on the aircraft, covering 169 million kilometres.

"Singapore and Moscow are both strategically important routes for Emirates," said Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline. "Deploying larger capacity aircraft, such as the A380, is central to helping us meet growing passenger demand in these markets.

"The Emirates A380 continues to peak customer interest.  Setting a new standard for aviation both in terms of customer comfort and environmental efficiency, the Emirates A380 continues to deliver strong load factors for us wherever it flies," added Clark.

With the addition of A380 services, Emirates' total capacity across four daily services from Dubai to Singapore increases to 1,659 seats daily. In Moscow the total capacity across two daily services from Dubai to Moscow increases to 775 seats daily.

Continuing with its swift A380 utilization from 10 December 10 Emirates will operate all five daily services from London Heathrow with an A380. The extensive Emirates A380 network enables many customers to now travel onboard the A380 for the full length of their journey.

Passengers in all classes can enjoy Emirates' award-winning 'ice' Digital Widescreen, offering 1,400 channels of on-demand entertainment.

Emirates now operates to 21 A380 destinations with new cities to be announced in the coming months. Emirates operates flights on a daily schedule from Malta to Dubai via Larnaka, Cyprus.
