DUBAI – Emirates airline will launch the first-ever scheduled A380 service to Moscow on Dec. 1, the company said.
The airline's 517-seat version of the A380 will replace the Boeing 777-300ER on one of its two daily flights to Domodedovo Airport. "Domodedovo is the first and the only Russian airport that meets the requirements of A380 operators," said Domodedovo director Igor Borisov. "We are fully prepared to handle A380 flights on a regular basis, having purchased the unique equipment designed to serve only this type of aircraft."
In November, Emirates chose St. Petersburg as its second gateway into Russia.
