Emirates has announced that its flagship A380 service will return to Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport from November 28.
The aircraft upgrade will help Emirates to meet strong passenger demand for inbound travel into the popular holiday destination, on the heels of Thailand's re-opening to international tourists who are vaccinated.
The Gulf carrier and Qantas partner will switch its daily Dubai-Melbourne service from a Boeing 777 to an Airbus A380 from February 1, according to the airline's schedule.
The move will result in a near-50% boost to the number of seats available on the route, which feeds into Emirates' network of flights from Dubai to the UK, Europe and Africa.
Dubai-Sydney gets the A380 bump-up from December 1, although Emirates has so far declined to comment on a timetable for reopening its lounges at the international terminals of both Sydney and Melbourne.
