Dubai-based Emirates will be operating its A380 service to Cairo International Airport on October 2, 2019, making it the first scheduled commercial airline to operate an A380 flight into Egypt. With the intent to make the world's largest commercial passenger jet a part of the airline's scheduled service to Cairo, this inaugural flight will re-affirm the airport's infrastructure readiness ahead of regular A380 operations.

Adel Al Redha, Chief Operating Officer, Emirates said: "Our close relationship with Egypt spans over 30 years and we reaffirm our commitment to the country by operating our iconic A380 to Cairo. We are setting the stage to make the popular A380 experience a part of our scheduled service to Cairo. Egypt has always been a significant destination for us in the region, and we are humbled to be able to play a role in making aviation history in Egypt. We are confident that Egyptian travellers will enjoy the Emirates A380 experience, especially our innovative products such as the onboard lounge and shower spa."

The Emirates A380 operating to Cairo is set in a three-class configuration, and will have 426 seats in the economy class on the lower deck, 76 flat-bed business class seats and 14 luxurious first class suites. First class passengers can relax and revitalise in one of the two A380 shower spas, and first and business class passengers are welcome in the Onboard Lounge to enjoy an extensive range of beverages and delicacies.
