The world’s largest passenger jet set to return to Brisbane skies from 1 March

Emirates‘ flagship A380 will make a comeback from 1 March, linking Brisbane and Dubai.

The world’s largest passenger jet will reappear in Brisbane skies next month as travel demands rise in the wake of Australia’s border reopening to international tourists.

Currently, flights to and from Brisbane are scheduled six times per week utilising the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

The reinstatement of daily flights, with the double-decker A380 aircraft to operate the route, will provide approximately 3,000 additional seats per week to both inbound and outbound travellers.
