It was recently announced that the travel corridor between Dubai and the UK has now opened up, meaning people no longer have to quarantine for two weeks upon arrival to the UK. Naturally, there has been a surge in people traveling to and from each country.
Emirates has just announced that it is set to increase the services of its iconic jumbo jet Emirates A380 to a number of major airports in the UK. From November 27, the A380 specifically will operate four daily flights to London Heathrow (LHR), and will run six times per week to Manchester (MCR), from December 2.
As of December 2, there will be a total of ten flights per week to Manchester, of which six will be served by an Emirates A380 and four with a Boeing 777-300ER. Additionally, Emirates will increase the number of flights to Birmingham as of November 27, and Glasgow as of December 1.
