Two Emirates A380 aircraft left Dubai yesterday (June 1st), embarking on the first commercial service to Bangkok and Toronto ever made by the Airbus superjumbo.
The new services will bring the luxury of the Emirates brand to clientele in Canada and Thailand and are a new milestone in the company's strong strategy for global growth.
Commenting on the launch of the new services, Emirates Airlines president Tim Clark said that the A380 is recognised as a pillar of growth both for the carrier and the two new destinations.
"In Thailand, the introduction of the super jumbo will support the local government's multimillion dollar promotional drive to boost tourism arrivals from the high-yield Middle East region," he added.
In order to promote further growth this summer, the Emirates has launched a groundbreaking promotion aimed at families looking to visit the emirate.
For every two fee-paying adults flying to Dubai, one child will be offered free travel, while up to two kids will be able to stay, eat and play in Dubai without charge.
