Melbourne to get another Emirates A380

From the 2nd March 2016 Emirates will be replacing their Boeing 777-300ER, currently being used on its Melbourne-Singapore-Dubai flights, to an Airbus A380.  The superjumbo takes flight on EK405 from Melbourne departing at 6pm (local) and EK404 on the return arriving at 7.50am (local), with passengers able to travel only to Singapore or to continue their journey through Dubai.
The upgrade marks Emirates’ sixth-daily A380 flight to Australia and makes Australia the third-largest destination for the airline’s superjumbo fleet, trailing only the United Kingdom and the United States. This will be the second daily A380 for Melbourne.
Emirates also flies the A380 on its non-stop Melbourne-Dubai flights (EK407/406), and will retain the existing Boeing 777-300ER on flights from Melbourne to Dubai via Kuala Lumpur (EK409/408).
Emirates currently have 65 A380s in the fleet serving 35 destinations globally, and a further 75 aircraft on order.
