Emirates which is the world’s largest airliner will return to Glasgow for the first time since September 2019 due to “sustained demand.”
Emirates will re-introduce the Airbus A380 for flights between Glasgow and Dubai, which can carry 517 passengers.
The airline’s UK divisional vice president, Richard Jewsbury, told the PA news agency, “The return of the A380 is purely demand driven. We’ve seen sustained demand from the Scottish market.
“Dubai is the number one destination but we’re seeing really good flows down to Australia, Thailand, the Indian subcontinent – which is very popular particularly for VFR (visiting friends and relatives) traffic – and the Indian Ocean.
“It’s about growing the capacity back.
“As we go into the summer period we’re expecting more visitors and inbound traffic from around the network.”
