Emirates to fly to Guangzhou

DUBAI-BASED Emirates Airline said yesterday it will operate its Airbus A380 between Dubai and Guangzhou, one of China’s largest cities, from October 1.

Guangzhou will join Emirates’ extensive A380 global network covering more than 40 destinations, including Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taipei, London, Paris, Sydney, Toronto, Auckland, Bangkok, and Seoul.

As capital of Guangdong Province, Guangzhou is an important tourism and trade partner of Dubai, as the vast majority of more than 300,000 Chinese nationals living in the United Arab Emirates are from Guangdong.

UAE has over 4,000 Chinese companies and in 2014, China became Dubai’s biggest trade partner.

Since the route’s opening in 2008, the airline has been flying a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on its daily flights between the two cities.

The A380 service will raise the flight capacity by 15 percent to meet the growing demand from southern China to Dubai and beyond.
