Emirates Airbus A380 to operate Dubai service on Wednesday 9 September 2009

An Emirates Airbus A380 flies past the original Elmdon terminal at BHX!!
Emirates will be giving Birmingham International Airport a
super-sized birthday present when it flies in the Airbus A380
“superjumbo” on Wednesday 9th September 2009 for the
airport’s 70th birthday party and official opening of its new
International Pier
The world’s largest airliner will be used on one of Emirates’ two
daily services to Dubai, giving passengers from the region the first
ever chance to fly directly to or from Birmingham on the A380
Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline, says: "Emirates and
Birmingham International Airport have enjoyed a successful
partnership since we started services in 2000, and it’s fitting that
we should mark this significant milestone in the airport’s history
by flying in our most talked about aircraft"
"We hope that many travellers from around the region will take
advantage of this opportunity to fly on the superjumbo for the
first time. With the range of amenities we have on board,
including the world’s first Onboard Shower Spas in First Class,
we are sure they won’t be disappointed"
Joe Kelly, Birmingham International Airport’s Deputy Chief
Executive Officer, said: "Our 70th anniversary is a fantastic
milestone for the airport and we are delighted that Emirates is
helping us celebrate our birthday with the A380. Additionally,
this is the first commercial flight of an A380 outside of London
Heathrow in the UK"
"As well as celebrating our 70th anniversary, Wednesday
9th September 2009 is also the official opening date of our
new £45 million International Pier. The Pier replaces the
existing Pier, constructed in 1984, with state of the art facilities
and it is therefore very fitting that the Emirates’ Airbus 380
will be one of the first aircraft to use it"
Passengers from the region will have two chances to fly on the
double decker on 9th September, with a choice of First, Business
or Economy Class cabins. Flight EK040 departs from Birmingham
at 3.05pm, arriving into Dubai at 1.05am (local time). Alternatively,
passengers can fly into Birmingham on the A380 earlier in the day.
Flight EK039 departs from Dubai at 8.05am (local time) arriving
in Birmingham at 12.35pm
