Emirates set to launch A380 Paris service in February 2010

Emirates has unveiled its plans to introduce the Airbus A380 service on the Paris route by February 1 2010.

With the introduction of new service, Paris would serve as Emirates' sixth A380 destination after Toronto, London Heathrow, Bangkok, Sydney and Auckland.

The sources said that the superjumbo, to be built mainly in France, will replace the airline's morning service out of Dubai, currently being served by Boeing 777 aircraft.

The sources further added that the airline operates a double-daily service to Paris, which is currently served by a combination of Boeing 777 aircraft.

As per media reports, Emirates has another 53 superjumbos to be delivered, of which it is due to receive six in this financial year.
