(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) With over 500 passengers on board, Emirates flight EK 087, led by Captain Daniel Wyss, a Swiss national, departed from Dubai International for Zurich International airport

The new A380 service to Zurich provides travellers wishing to visit destinations such as Mauritius, Bangkok, Shanghai and Sydney, the chance to experience a seamless Emirates A380 experience connecting through Emirates' Dubai hub

"Since commencing operations between Dubai and Zurich in August 1992, Emirates has carried 3.4 million passengers travelling between the two cities," said Thierry Aucoc, Emirates' senior vice president of commercial operations for Europe and Russian Federation. "Deploying the A380, which allows us to bring 163 more passengers every day into Zurich - a 21.8 per cent increase - is central to helping us meet growing passenger demand in the market.

"During just over five years of A380 operations, Emirates has carried a staggering 21.8 million passengers to global destinations. The continued expansion of our A380 fleet, now numbering 44, has enabled us to bring our innovative product and world-class service to travellers in this market," he added
