Emirates shows the way…A380s to fly to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Christchurch and more 777s for Brisbane!

March 25, 2021 Aviation, Headline News No Comments Email Email

While our self-claimed “national carrier” QANTAS is still languishing and not operating any international flights except highly subsided repatriation flights until it appears October and then it also appears limited services and no A380s,  other airlines are flying regularly into Australia with passenger loads only constrained by Federal Government failed quarantine numbers cap.

In the meantime though, perhaps in what is a confidence lesson for those running the flying kangaroo, according to our friends at Executive Traveller, Emirates has announced their amazing A380 superjumbos will be returning to Australia and New Zealand from late 2021, with Brisbane also gaining more Boeing 777 flights.

With Emirates expecting to bring its Airbus A380s back to Australia and New Zealand from late 2021, A380 services are apparently now selling between Dubai and Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, and Christchurch and Emirates is also gearing up for more Brisbane flights, as well as the return of non-stop links between Dubai and Auckland, and trans-Tasman hops between Sydney and Christchurch.

Emirates says that these ambitious changes are set to start between October 31 and November 2, with the start date varying slightly by route and direction of travel, but ahead of what’s normally the peak Australian summer travel period, with the timeline aligning closely with QANTAS, although Emirates appears to be doing with a greater degree of confidence and pzazz and also with A380s with QANTAS A380 destined to live out their lives gathering dust in the desert somewhere.

The Executive Traveller report does go on to say that even so, it’s a bold move for the world’s largest operator of the world’s largest passenger plane, particularly for an airline that relies on connecting travellers around the globe, at a time where one third of all countries are closed to tourists, but clearly, Emirates expects that to change, and change quickly.

The report says that it does also remain to be seen whether the governments of Australia and New Zealand would permit trans-Tasman travellers to take such flights without the need to quarantine, as quarantine-free travel across the ditch is currently restricted to designated ‘green lane’ flights only and of course, the same can be said of the Australian Government for all international routes, including those that Emirates expects to ramp up later this year.
