In recent days Emirates operated its Airbus A380 on a historic flight to Indonesia, specifically Bali.
The service operated by the world’s largest passenger plane is the first-ever scheduled A380 service to Indonesia and, as such, was met with significant amounts of fanfare.
EK386 departed Dubai at 0310 before arriving in Bali at 1620, all times local to their respective cities. After spending multiple hours on the ground, the A380 will depart Bali at 1940 before arriving in Dubai at 0045.
We are extremely excited that our iconic A380 aircraft has arrived in Bali. This has been the result of months of careful planning and execution. The commencement of our A380 operations in Indonesia is also an extension of our long-standing commitment to the market, and a testament to the solid partnership we have with the I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport and the local authorities. We look forward to offering our A380’s best-in-class services to our valued customers flying to and from Denpasar, while simultaneously serving the increased demand for international travel with the Superjumbo being one of two daily services to the island.Orhan Abbas, Emirates’ Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations
The three-class Airbus A380 provides passengers with remarkable comfort, whether jumping aboard the aircraft for leisure, business, or something in between.
Dubai and Bali have long been connected with flights beginning in 2015, and a Jakarta service launched some 30+ years ago. Twenty-eight weekly flights now serve Indonesia, and thanks to codeshare agreements, customers can enjoy onward travel aboard either Garuda Indonesia or Batik Air.
