We recently told you about Emirates’ new flights to Stansted – and now the airline has announced regular flights to a stunning new destination.
From Sunday October 28 there will be regular flights to Osaka in Japan, and we could not be more excited.
The Airbus A380 service will offer a total of 489 seats in a three-class configuration, with 399 seats in economy class, 76 fully-flat bed seats in business and 14 private suites.
The new service represents a capacity increase of 38 percent and joins the airline’s other A380 service to Japan, which flies daily to Tokyo's Narita Airport.
Osaka is Japan’s second largest metropolitan area after the capital and is on the main island of Honshu.
The city is known for its modern architecture, tasty street food and buzzing nightlife scene and is famous for the 16th century Osaka Castle, which is surrounded by a moat and a park with plum, peach and cherry blossom trees.
It is a laid-back and down-to-earth destination and is a great place to experience a modern Japanese city in all of its glory without the bustle – and expense – of Tokyo.
The city is also a great place for shopping so make sure you travel light to leave room for all those purchases.
And if you think a trip to Osaka is going to set you back a bit, you may be mistaken. It was recently claimed that Emirates flights are among the “cheapest in the world” and we can never say no to a bargain.
