Emirates will be boosting its services to Osaka with the introduction of the A380 starting from 1 June 2024.

The A380 to be deployed to Osaka will be a four-class aircraft configuration, retrofitted with the airline’s latest product, Premium Economy.

Osaka becomes the second Japanese destination to operate with the newly upgraded aircraft. The airline’s A380 operations to Kansai International Airport (KIX) come as Japan expects an increase in tourism.

From June 1, Emirates’ four-class A380 will replace the airline's Boeing 777-300ER aircraft currently operating the EK316/EK317 service to and from Osaka’s Kansai International Airport (KIX).

With upgraded A380 operations, Emirates will offer 910 additional weekly seats between Dubai and Osaka, offering more opportunities to connect to and beyond Dubai to popular destinations for travellers including Milan, Madrid, Brazil, Paris and London.

Emirates celebrated the 20th anniversary of its services between Dubai and Osaka last year and during that time, the airline carried more than 220,000 passengers on more than 360 flights between the two gateways in 2023.

Emirates’ four-class A380 deployed to Osaka will feature 14 First Class suites, 76 lie-flat seats in Business Class, 56 seats in Premium Economy Class and 338 ergonomically designed seats in Economy Class.

On a four-class Emirates A380, the Premium Economy cabin is located at the front of the main deck with the 56 seats laid out in a 2-4-2 configuration. In the cabin, every inch of space anticipates customer needs with a generous seat pitch and width for working and relaxing, and customised features that offer function and convenience like in-seat charging points and a side cocktail table.
