Emirates connections through Dubai improve

Brits will have more opportunities to pick up connecting flights in Dubai, following the announcement of improved links between the emirate and Moscow.

The global carrier Emirates will run a double-daily service to Moscow using an A380 aircraft on the route from August 1st, 2014 instead of the current Boeing 777. As a result, seat capacity between the two destinations will be increased by 15 per cent.

Thierry Antinori, executive vice president of the airline, said that flights to and from the Russian city have been very popular since their launch in 2003.

"This second aircraft upgrade will help us meet the ever-increasing demand, giving many more travellers the chance to experience our flagship A380 aircraft and all its comforts and features."

From its Dubai hub, Emirates flies to numerous destinations across teh Far East, Australia and the Indian Ocean, including Bangkok, Sydney and Mauritius.

The flights, which will offer 399 seats in Economy Class, 76 lie-flat seats in Business Class and 14 luxury first-class private suites, will land in Moscow's Domodedovo Airport.ADNFCR-408-ID-801686661-ADNFCR
