Emirates announces A380 services to Sao Paulo effective March 26th.
From the 27th of March, Emirates will deploy the A380-800 on the Dubai – Sao Paulo route. It is actually the same day where Etihad will stop flying into Sao Paulo. Emirates first started flying the B777-200LR into Sao Paulo, and after a short period of time the service was upgraded to the B777-300ER.
The flight is blocked at 14 hours and 55 minutes westbound, and at 14 hours and 30 minutes east bound. This will be the first ever scheduled daily A380 flight into South America.
On the same day, Emirates will downgrade EK217/218, the Los Angles afternoon flight, to the B777-200LR. And on the same day as well, the Dubai – Rio de Janeiro Galeao – Buenos Aires Ezeiza will be upgraded to the B777-300ER from the B777-200LR.
