(MENAFN - Arab News) Emirates is to introduce a scheduled a380 service to kuwait from july 16 marking the airline's 25th anniversary of flights to the country.

ek 857 and ek 858 will be upgraded to a double-decker bringing emirates' highly popular flagship aircraft to kuwait international airport. it was on july 161989 when emirates began flights between dubai and kuwait and the airline now serves the route five times daily with a combination of boeing and airbus aircraft.

'we would like to express our special thanks to the state of kuwait the aviation authorities and kuwait international airport for their continued support over the past 25 years and for allowing us to bring the a380 into their country. this is a tremendous opportunity for customers traveling to and from kuwait to enjoy the pride of the emirates fleet" said sheikh majid al-mualla emirates' divisional svp commercial operations centre.

'we have 47 a380s which we deploy all over the world from la to auckland but the experience continues to generate excitement and fascination among our passengers and those who come to airports just to catch a glimpse of this magnificent aircraft" he added.

the emirates a380 is like no other. passengers travelling in first class can step out of their private suites and visit one of two onboard shower spas where they can freshen up with a shower before landing. both first and business class passengers can chat over beverages and snacks in an onboard lounge.

the emirates a380 on the kuwait route will offer 14 first class private suites 76 flat-bed seats in business class and 399 seats in economy class.

kuwait is only the second market in the middle east to be served by the airline's flagship aircraft after saudi arabia. emirates operates its a380 to 28 of its 142 destinations.
