Posted 2 December 2016 · Add Comment

Emirates yesterday launched the world's shortest scheduled A380 service, flying a distance of 379 kilometres with a total travel time of 1 hour and 20 minutes from Dubai to Doha, and 1 hour 10 minutes on the return journey.

 

The A380 flight touched down this morning at Hamad International Airport, taxiing in to a water cannon salute and was welcomed by key officials and trade guests at an Emirates reception at the terminal. Travelling on the flight from Dubai was Adil Al Ghaith, Emirates’ Senior Vice President Commercial Operations, Gulf Middle East and Iran and prominent members of the UAE business community.

At the terminal, guests enjoyed a guided static tour of the iconic double-decker aircraft. The tour gave guests a chance to see first-hand some of the most iconic Emirates amenities, like the First Class Private Suites, Shower Spas and the popular Onboard lounge for First Class and Business Class passengers, which offers a wide range of drinks and canapés, as well as ample space to relax and socialise with other passengers.

Outbound flight EK 841 departs Dubai at 0745hrs, arriving in Doha at 0805hrs.
