Emirates Airline celebrates the launch of its fourth daily nonstop passenger service to Imam Khomeini International Airport in Tehran with the landing of a one-off Airbus A380 service, Emirates Airline News reported.

On-board the A380 flight was a VIP delegation from Iran and Dubai, senior executives from Emirates led by Sheikh Majid Al Mualla, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President for Commercial Operations Centre, as well as international media.

The flight carried crew from 20 different countries demonstrating how Emirates connects people across the globe.

Emirates began flights to Iran in 1990 when Emirates Airline was only five years old. Since then over 6.6 million passengers have travelled between the two countries. Tehran is one of the latest airports on the Emirates network to welcome the Airbus A380.

Emirates Airline has redefined travel with its A380. Travelers in all classes can use the on-board Wi-Fi, and be entertained by the award-winning ice system with over 1,800 channels of in-flight entertainment on demand. 

First and Business Class passengers have access to the on-board lounge, which has become a popular gathering place for passengers at 40,000 feet.

Emirates currently operates its 53 A380s to 30 destinations across its expanding global network and the airline has a further 87 A380s on order.
