Clark Freeport—Emirates is deploying Airbus A380 aircraft for flights between Dubai and Clark International Airport today.
The Clark-Dubai route will help meet the demand for flights to and from the Philippines, especially serving passengers from Luzon.
The Emirates A380 flight will depart Dubai at 2:40 a.m. and arrive at Clark at 3:30 p.m.. The flight will depart Clark at 6:20 p.m., arriving in Dubai at 10:45 p.m. on the same day.
“We are proud to fly our first scheduled A380 service to Clark, in the year we are celebrating our 30th anniversary of serving the Philippines. Emirates has shared a long-standing relationship with the country and our commitment to it and our customers remains stronger than ever,” said Satish Sethi, country manager of Emirates-Philippines.
She thanked authorities in the Philippines for supporting the airline. “We resumed scheduled passenger services to Clark on Aug. 10 with six weekly flights and have since been witnessing tremendous demand from customers in the UAE and other cities within our network.
Emirates A380 aircraft can accommodate more travelers on its flights, while allowing them to experience its unique features and safety protocols we have put in place to protect our customers and crew.
The airline said that since the resumption of flights to Clark earlier this month, it saw a huge demand on its six weekly fights and daily flights between Dubai and Manila. Emirates will resume its operations to Cebu on Aug. 20.
Emirates is gradually expanding its passenger services to 74 cities in August, allowing travelers to connect safely and conveniently to the Americas, Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia Pacific via Dubai.
Customers from Emirates’ network can stop over or travel to Dubai as the city has re-opened for international business and leisure visitors.
COVID-19 PCR tests are mandatory for all inbound and transit passengers arriving in Dubai (and the UAE), including UAE citizens, residents and tourists, irrespective of the country they are coming from.
