About the Shortest A380 Flight
Emirates is one of the largest operator of the the A380 in the sky. These jumbo jets are able to carry about 500-600 pax at a time depending on their configuration. Emirates is also know to have flown their World’s shortest A380 flight. The first shortest A380 flight of theirs was to Kuwait but unfortunately they removed the A380 of the route since it wasn’t profitable and they continue to serve it with a B777.
Few years back it was changed To the A380 service to Doha but unfortunately due to the gulf blockade the route was striped down. As of latest information the shortest flight was to Oman, Muscat but again due to some unfortunate reasons the A380 was replaced by the B777. Occasionally there is a one of A380 service to Bahrain during its national day.
We will be flying the world’s shortest A380 flight from Dubai to Oman, as it was the last operational route of the A380 shortest flight. This route takes approx. about 30-45 min covering a total distance of only 215 nm.
