It's very likely that EK will start A380 service to FRA in early 2011, about the same time that Singapore Airlines might start A380 service to FRA as well.
Thanks, some good news. Just a few more months to wait.

Internet set to fly high at Emirates

Dubai airline Emirates is aiming to equip all of its fleet of 90 A380s with Wi-fi networks that will allow passengers to to surf the internet and make phone calls during their flight on laptops or smartphones.

The carrier has signed a deal with Geneva-based company OnAir, which provides in-flight voice and data technology to set up the
paid-for service in the double-decker arircrafts by June 2012.

The new deal is likely to open the door for further Middle East airlines to add Wi-fi to their customer's in-flight entertainment experience.

Emirates have now established themselves as the pioneers of in-flight connectivity. "We are very proud that after rigorous evaluation, they have chosen OnAir technology for their flagship aircraft fleet," said Ian Dawkins, CEO of OnAir.

Etihad launches service to Seoul

Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has announced it will commence operations to the South Korean capital, Seoul, on December 12, Seoul will become the 65th destination on Etihad’s network.

Etihad will operate a daily return service to Seoul’s Incheon Airport from its home base in Abu Dhabi, operating Airbus A330-200 aircraft on the route. The Etihad aircraft will be configured with three cabins, offering 2,800 seats each week to and from Seoul.

James Hogan, Etihad Airways Chief Executive Officer, said: “South Korea is emerging as a key partner for the UAE, and the decision to commence services to Seoul reflects this strengthening partnership. Over the past two years, Korean business has been building a strong presence in the UAE, particularly in the clean energy sector, construction, technology and small to medium enterprises.

“We expect the increasing trade relations between the two countries will lead to growing numbers of business travellers, as well as people from both regions visiting friends and relatives.”

At present, there are over 5,000 Korean nationals living and working in the UAE, as well as a significant number of Korean businesses in operation.

Emirates swoops on StrawberryFrog

Emirates has picked the agency StrawberryFrog to drive its £160m global marketing campaigns.

The airlines says that StrawberryFrog will be responsible for developing and rolling out a new brand platform for Emirates “that will reflect the airline’s ambition to become one of the world's most recognized global brands.”

Boutros Boutros, divisional senior vice president, corporate communications at Emirates, says: "StrawberryFrog presented some outstanding and innovative ideas that connected with our vision of where we want to take our brand as we evolve and enter a new growth phase.

“As our global lead communications partner, we look forward to working with them to define and create a new category in the evolving media landscape, one that reflects our values and global aspirations.”

The relationship which begins immediately, will be managed out of StrawberryFrog’s Amsterdam office.

Emirates appointed VCCP to handle its UK advertising last year.

The airlines is the stadium sponsor for Arsenal Football Club.

StrawberryFrog spawns new advertising era for Emirates

Ben Flanagan

July 26. 2010

Emirates Airline has decided to drop its long-standing “Keep Discovering” slogan and has appointed a new global communications partner to help refresh its brand.

Boutros Boutros, the divisional senior vice president of corporate communications at Emirates, said the “Keep Discovering” tagline had served its purpose.

“It delivered what it needed to for Emirates. There was nothing wrong with it, but we believe it’s served its days, and we’re coming up with something more global. When you grow like Emirates has done, your communications strategy needs to grow in parallel,” he said.

The airline announced yesterday that it had selected the advertising agency StrawberryFrog as its global lead communications partner.

Working from its Amsterdam office, the agency will be “rolling out a new brand platform for Emirates that will reflect the airline’s ambition to become one of the world’s most recognised global brands”, the airline said yesterday.

Sir Maurice Flanagan, the carrier’s founding chief executive and executive vice chairman, said StrawberryFrog had been chosen after a four-way pitch among agencies.

Sir Maurice said the “Keep Discovering”slogan had been a success.“It’s used in all kinds of different circumstances – advertising, corporate communications, PR, sponsorship and even management”.

He hinted it may not disappear altogether. “It’s something we can use time and time again.”

Mr Boutros confirmed StrawberryFrog would help the airline develop a new slogan. Emirates will retain its existing media agencies and Mr Boutros said it works with 48 public relations agencies and “more than 100” advertising and media agencies globally.

Emirates was last week named one of the UAE’s best-known companies by Superbrands, an independent organisation of brand experts. But the airline was placed behind Dubai Duty Free, which won the Brand of the Year award.

Mike English, the director of Superbrands Middle East, said Emirates had lost some of its connection with the UAE public. “The personal emotion is not there as strongly as it used to be.”

Hermann Behrens, the chief executive of The Brand Union Middle East, which has previously worked with Emirates Group companies, said the airline’s branding had been “very strong” over the past six years.

“Perhaps one issue Emirates does have is that they’ve positioned themselves very strongly in the tourism space, rather than the business space. Perhaps that’s something they will consider,” added Mr Behrens.

Emirates to Add A340-500 Aircraft on Tripoli Route

From 1st August 2010, Emirates will offer a total of 3,612 seats per week between Tripoli and Dubai representing an increase of nine percent in passenger capacity.

“Demand for our services to Libya has been steadily building so the addition of the A340-500 will not only increase capacity but will also enhance the customer experience when travelling on this route,” said Haitham Al Battawy, Emirates Manager Libya.

“The introduction of aircraft will facilitate travel for scores of Libyan nationals who reside in Dubai and Australia and visit home each year.” “The aircraft addition will also offer travellers from North African markets seamless connections to the Far East, the GCC, the Indian subcontinent and Australian destinations via Emirates Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport, designed for optimum travelling comfort,” he added.

Emirates’ A340-500 aircraft offers 12 First Class Suites, 42 Business class and 204 Economy class seats, alongside 15 tonnes of cargo-carrying capacity. "Our Economy Class passengers can expect the same high level of comfort and service as First and Business class passengers,” stated Al Battawy. “Our ergonomically designed seats, extra legroom and superior service ensure that Emirates’ Economy class travel stands out from the competition."

Passengers in all class levels can enjoy Emirates award-winning ICE entertainment system, which includes more than 600 channels of on-demand entertainment, including 50 new movie releases, more than 20 movie classics and 20 children’s films. A large number of Arabic, Hindi and other world cinema films are also available.

Emirates’ cargo division transports a variety of goods into Tripoli ranging from electronic goods from the Far East to drilling equipment from the US. Exports from Libya predominantly comprise oil well equipment which is shipped to Dubai for onward distribution across the Middle East.

Emirates currently operates daily flights to Tripoli utilising an Airbus 330-200; offering 12 seats in First Class, 42 in Business and 183 seats in Economy. EK 746 leaves Tripoli at 1520hrs and arrives in Dubai at 2310hrs. EK 745 departs from Dubai at 0920hrs and arrives in Tripoli at 1320hr.

Emirates superjumbo first in China

Daniel Bardsley

August 01. 2010

An Emirates Airline Airbus A380 yesterday became the first superjumbo to arrive in China on a scheduled service when it landed in bright sunshine at Beijing Capital International Airport.

Its arrival heralds further strengthening of aviation ties between the UAE and the world’s most populous nation.

An A380 will now fly one of Emirates’s two daily services between Dubai and Beijing. It joins the route seven years after Emirates became the first airline to launch a non-stop service between the Middle East and the Chinese mainland.

“This momentous touchdown of the world’s largest aircraft not only reiterates Emirates’s commitment to the development of the China market but also begins a new era for China’s civil aviation,” said Richard Jewsbury, Emirates’s senior vice president, commercial operations, Far East and Australasia.

Mr Jewsbury said he hoped having the A380 on the route would further help to grow trade between the UAE and China.

“We look forward to progressively growing our operations in China in the future,” he said.

Trade between the UAE and China was worth US$21 billion (Dh77.12bn) last year, making the UAE China’s largest trading partner in the Middle East after Saudi Arabia. It peaked in 2008 at $28bn, with last year’s dip blamed on the global economic slowdown.

Speaking in Shanghai earlier this year, Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi, the Minister of Foreign Trade, said bilateral trade was likely to pick up this year.

Senior officials from major Chinese companies including the energy giant Sinopec, China Construction and the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China travelled on yesterday’s inaugural service to Beijing.

The Emirates A380, configured for up to 517 passengers, is scheduled to depart from Dubai each day at 4.10am local time and land in Beijing about 11 hours later.

As well as its two daily services from Dubai to Beijing, Emirates has twice-daily services to Shanghai and Hong Kong, as well as a daily service to Guangzhou. The airline has 11 A380s in service, flying to London, Paris, Toronto, Seoul, Bangkok, Jeddah, Sydney and Auckland, as well as Beijing. Just as Emirates is increasing capacity on its Dubai-to-Beijing route, so Etihad Airways, based in Abu Dhabi, is looking to expand its services between the capital and China.

On a visit to Beijing two months ago, James Hogan, the chief executive of Etihad, said the airline wanted to make its Beijing service, currently five times a week, a daily service. In addition, the airline is hoping to launch a service to Shanghai and after that a route to Guangzhou.

Etihad began its Beijing service in March 2008 with four services a week, increasing this to five two years later. In addition to its passenger services to China, Etihad also operates freight services to Shanghai, Tianjin and Guangzhou and is looking to increase the frequency of these flights as well. Robert Bruce, a Hong Kong-based aviation analyst for CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets, said the expansion of services by the UAE’s carriers came amid a positive outlook for the Chinese aviation sector.

“Overall, the growth in outgoing passengers remains a strong trend in the medium term,” he said.

It's very likely that EK will start A380 service to FRA in early 2011, about the same time that Singapore Airlines might start A380 service to FRA as well.
Even Toronto would not have been operated with a A380 if it was not restricted to three weekly flights. They started with a 777, than EK upgraded to the A380. Now if EK gets seven weekly flights, would they still keep the A380 in YYZ? I guess no?

UAE's Etihad plans all-economy flights to meet demand
5 August 2010

DUBAI, Aug 5 (Reuters) - Abu Dhabi's Etihad Airways said on Thursday it will introduce an all economy service in October on short-haul routes to meet demand for lower fares.

The carrier will deploy two Airbus A320 aircraft on the initial flights to Alexandria, Calicut, Colombo, Damascus, Doha and Thiruvananthapuram, it said in a statement.

"The all economy cabin aircraft will operate to short haul Etihad destinations, which have high demand for economy traffic and low demand for premium traffic," it said.

Etihad plans to expand the all-economy fleet to 10 A320 aircraft to enable it to launch new short haul destinations and meet demand for lower fairs on its existing ones.

"Our all-economy aircraft will allow us to offer a more competitive product in key point-to-point markets in Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and the Indian Subcontinent...,"Chief Executive James Hogan said in the statement. The company reported cargo revenue growth of 59 percent in the first half of 2010 as increased traffic pushed up passenger figures 11 percent.

The airline carried 3.3 million passengers in the period, recording a 72.5 percent seat factor, while cargo tonnage increased 22 percent from a year earlier, it said in July.

Of course EK would downgauge to 772/77L or 77W if they were granted for daily flights to YYZ. But what does YYZ have to do with FRA in this case? EK has 2 daily flights to FRA using 77Ws and planes are full. FRA was already mentioned as one of EK's next A380 destinations by an EK spokesman.

Emirates to Increase Flights to Houston and Los Angeles

Emirates is to launch second daily flights to Los Angeles and Houston. Starting 31 October 2010 for Los Angeles and 1 November 2010 for Houston, Emirates will fly non-stop to both cities twice a day on Boeing 777 aircraft.

The airline, which recorded a significant increase in revenue for the Americas in 2009-10, will soon offer over 15,000 seats on 98 return flights per week to the United States.

Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline said, “The additional services will provide customers in the Middle East and Asia with even easier access to the largest cities in Texas and California, supporting the burgeoning business and leisure traffic between these markets and the United States.”

Emirates’ services play a significant role in supporting trade and tourism between the United Arab Emirates and America. Since the airline launched its first flight to New York in 2004, the value of trade between the two nations has almost tripled, reaching US$12.7 billion in the 12 months to June 2010.

The additional flights will provide further impetus to the U.A.E.'s strengthening trade relationship with the States, which saw US exports reach US$11.4billion this year - making the U.A.E. the largest consumer of American exports in the Middle East and North Africa.

Key imports from the United States include machinery, computer and electronic products, primary metal manufacturing, chemicals and transport equipment.

Over 750 US firms have set up offices in Dubai and 400,000 American business and leisure travellers visited the Emirate last year, a 23% increase from 2007-08.

Emirates currently flies nonstop to four U.S. cities: New York, Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The airline will reinstate its flagship A380 aircraft on one of its double-daily JFK services from 31 October 2010
