Emirates to operate second daily Airbus A380 service to Jordan during July and August

Emirates has announced that it is boosting operations to Jordan during July and August 2021 by deploying Airbus A380 on both the daily flights between Dubai and Amman.

2nd daily A380 flight

Emirates is boosting service to Amman, Jordan. Between 15th and 20th July 2021 and between 10th and 31st August 2021, the carrier will be adding a 2nd daily A380 service between Dubai International Airport and Queen Alia International Airport. The airline operates one afternoon service and one midnight service.

The schedule for the afternoon service is:

  • Dubai-Amman
  • Departure time: 14:05
  • Arrival time: 16:00
  • Flight time: 2 hours and 55 minutes
  • Flight number: EK903
  • Frequency: Daily
  • Amman-Dubai
  • Departure time: 18:00
  • Arrival time: 22:00
  • Flight time: 3 hours
  • Flight number: EK904
  • Frequency: Daily

The schedule for the midnight service is:

  • Dubai-Amman
  • Departure time: 22:10
  • Arrival time: 00:15 (the next day)
  • Flight time: 3 hours and 05 minutes
  • Flight number: EK905
  • Frequency: Daily
  • Amman-Dubai
  • Departure time: 02:05
  • Arrival time: 06:05
  • Flight time: 3 hours
  • Flight number: EK906
  • Frequency: Daily

Emirates currently operates EK903/904 with an Airbus A380. However, as aforementioned, between 15th and 20th July 2021 and between 10th and 31st August 2021, the Middle Eastern giant will operate EK905/906 also with an Airbus A380. This means that during this period, Emirates will operate twice-daily A380 service to Jordan.

The move to boost capacity by introducing a second A380 service between Dubai and Amman during these periods was driven by high forecasted passenger demand. Emirates is adding capacity to Jordan during the busy Eid Al Adha period.

Emirates will also increase flights between Dubai and Amman from 12 to 14 weekly from 1st July 2021.

Mohammad Lootah, Area Manager for Jordan, Emirates, said:

The introduction of a second A380 service to Amman during the Eid Al Adha period and in August means more of our customers will have the opportunity to experience our industry-leading products onboard, and will also enhance choice and travel preferences as they plan their journeys to and from Dubai, and beyond to popular destinations for Jordanian travellers. Jordan is an important destination for Emirates, and we will continue to look at ways to grow our operations in the market to serve our customers better.

Emirates A380 features 14 first-class suites, 76 lie-flat business class seats and 420 standard economy class seats. Emirates recently announced that it will operate over 30 A380s this summer to 15 destinations while proudly announcing that it has restored almost 90% of pre-pandemic network.

Meanwhile, the airline is also operating Airbus A380s to Bahrain during the month of June. The airline is resuming flights to Phuket in Thailand, Nice and Lyon in France and Malta and Larnaca in the Mediterranean. The carrier is also planning to launch flights to Miami in July.
