Emirates confirms the temporary return of the A380 to Austria

From February 21 until the end of the winter flight schedule (March 30, 2024), an A380 aircraft in three classes (first / business / economy) will be used for flights EK 127 and EK 128, which are currently operated by a Boeing 777.-300ER. This will increase capacity and provide more options for passengers traveling to and from Vienna. The A380 aircraft will depart Dubai Airport No. EK 127 at 8:55 am local time and arrive in the Austrian capital at 12:25 pm local time. On flight EK 128, the Airbus takes off again from Vienna at 3:10 pm local time and arrives in Dubai at 11:40 pm local time.

Elisabeth Zauner, Director of Emirates Airlines in Austria, expressed her enthusiasm for the return of the A380 to Vienna: “Using the A380 until the end of the winter flight schedule is a great achievement for us, which confirms the importance of Vienna as a global tourist destination.” And also the starting point. We certainly hope that our flagship will return permanently in the future.

The Vienna location had been scheduled to operate the Emirates A380 since August 2022. With the change in the winter flight schedule, which reflects the carrier's dynamic and demand-driven fleet planning, Emirates is now the only airline serving Vienna Airport with its popular double-decker A380 aircraft. . Evening flights EK 126 and EK 125 will continue to operate as usual on a B777-300 ER aircraft.

It remains to be seen whether Emirates will regularly fly the A380 to Vienna again after 31 March 2024. In Austria Wings' big interview at the end of 2022, Elisabeth Zohner was hoping to return in January 2023, which unfortunately did not happen. In November 2023, an Emirates spokeswoman responded to the Austrian wing's request and said that the A380 was not expected to return to Vienna until further notice.
