Emirates Airbus A380 returns to Kuala Lumpur in July 2022

After a long absence due to the ongoing pandemic, Emirates will re-introduce its flagship Airbus A380 superjumbo to Kuala Lumpur from July 2nd 2022.

Emirates used to operate its two class 615-seater A380s to Kuala Lumpur on the EK 346/EK 347 rotation before the pandemic hit in early 2020.

The flights are currently operated by a Boeing 777-300ER.

The proposed schedule of the A380 flights between Dubai and Kuala Lumpur looks like this:

EK 346 DXB D 0310. KUL A 1425. A380

EK 343. KUL D 0240 DXB A 0530. A380

The afternoon arrival is a great opportunity for plane spotters to catch the arrival of the superjumbo at KUL. With the MH A380s not likely to return to service in the future, this would be the only A380 operation at KUL for the time being.

Of course, all this is *IF* this upgrade actually materialises, subject to Malaysian border restrictions/reopening in the next few months.
