Emirates will increase its daily A380 flights to Jeddah for four days in January to support demand during Dubai Shopping Festival and school holidays.

The existing two-daily service will increase to three-daily from 16-17 January, and 25-26 January, departing Dubai at 0140hrs and arriving in Jeddah at 0340hrs each day, with the return flight departing Jeddah at 0515hrs and arriving in Dubai at 0905hrs.

The double decker A380 can accommodate 489 passengers, with 399 seats in economy class, 76 in business class, and 14 first class private suites.

In the past year Emirates has introduced a number of new routes as it looks to expand its network. Washington DC in the US, Adelaide in Australia and Lyon in France have all been added to the service in the past six months, while Lusaka in Zambia and Harare in Zimbabwe were added in the first quarter of 2012. A route to Warsaw in Poland is also expected to begin in February this year.
