Emirates to operate daily A380 flights to Bahrain in June


Dubai carrier Emirates has introduced daily scheduled flights of its double-decker A380 to Bahrain, as summer travel picks up.

The flagship Emirates Airbus A380 will serve the Dubai-Bahrain route for the month, offering a total of 507 seats in three different classes: 417 in Economy, 76 flat-bed seats in Business, and 14 First Class suites.

“The change of aircraft will help meet growing demand to and from Bahrain during the summer,” according to a Dubai Media Office report.

The airline also announced special fares to popular destinations for Bahrainis, including Dubai, Istanbul, and Maldives.

Bahrain has reopened its borders for tourists, and travelers from the UAE can visit the country without having to quarantine. The move comes as the UAE – having one of the highest vaccination rates in the world – slowly lifts travel restrictions.—AN
