NEWS Emirates going double daily A380 to Schiphol

The Dutch government has now granted permission to operate an additional A380 flight at Amsterdam Schiphol, according to reports. Emirates already operates a twice daily service (the other flight is currently flown by B777-300ER) from the Dutch airport so it means it will be able to both offer a more attractive product for both flights and provide more seats to passengers. As we have previously reported (see news November 19), the news that Emirates wished to operate a twice daily A380 service at Schiphol did not go down well with both national airline KLM and the Dutch pilots’ union VNV.
