Emirates Airlines unveils plans to introduce A350 Aircraft on Colombo route

May 07, Colombo (LNW): Emirates Airlines announced yesterday (06) that Colombo will be among the initial destinations served by its A350 aircraft, slated to enter service in September 2024.

Starting from January 1, 2025, Emirates’ fourth daily service to Colombo, EK654/655, will operate using the A350.

The airline is set to bolster its fleet with 10 new A350s by March 31, 2025, intending to deploy these state-of-the-art aircraft to nine destinations in the coming months.

This move aims to offer passengers the latest signature cabin experiences.

The initial batch of Emirates A350 aircraft will feature three cabin classes: 32 next-generation Business Class seats, 21 seats in Premium Economy, and 259 Economy Class seats.

These aircraft will primarily serve short to medium-haul routes within the Emirates network, with Bahrain being the inaugural destination.

As Emirates introduces the A350 into its fleet, passengers will have more opportunities to enjoy its highly acclaimed Premium Economy product and experience the next-generation Business Class cabins, particularly on short and medium-haul routes in the Middle East, GCC, West Asia, and Europe.

Emirates Airline’s Deputy President and Chief Commercial Officer, Adnan Kazim, commented, “The A350 will be a game changer for Emirates, enabling us to serve regional points with superior operating efficiency and flexibility across the Middle East, GCC, West Asia, and Europe.”

“Flying A350 to nine cities in such a short span of time adds more premium cabin options and choice across geographies for our customers and ensures we maintain our competitive edge and industry-leading position,” he emphasised.
