(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Adding over 2,200 seats per week between Dubai and Barcelona, Emirates' newly-expanded operation is a direct response to strong passenger demand. It will also help contribute to Spain's economic growth and enable more passengers to experience its flagship A380 product. Barcelona joins a host of 25 other major cities around the world to be served by an Emirates A380.

Travelling on the commemorative flight from Dubai was Thierry Aucoc, Senior Vice-President Commercial Operations, Europe and the Russian Federation. The aircraft was welcomed by key officials, including Sonia Corrochano, Director of Barcelona El Prat Airport and Richard Font, Generalitat, Routes Committee President. After a welcome reception, VIPs, Barcelona Airport executives, Civil Aviation Authority officials and media enjoyed a guided static tour of the double-decker aircraft. The tour gave the guests a chance to see first-hand the innovations provided for passengers on-board.

"Barcelona, 'the business corridor of the Mediterranean', has a vibrant economy. It is attracting foreign investment across sectors, and it is building on its position as an international congress centre and multifaceted tourism destination. Accordingly, we have seen growing demand for air transport to and from this exciting city, and our A380 service is a direct response to that demand. We are proud to bring our flagship A380 aircraft to Spain, and to provide our customers with options to continue their A380 experience wwith just one stop in Dubai, to a range of global destinations," said Aucoc.

Corrochano said, "A daily A380 service in itself is testimony to the potential and appeal of the city, and of the airport in its own right. The commitment shown by Emirates underlines again that we are a competitive airport that is prepared to fulfil the requirements of the airlines serving our destination ."
