Emirates has launched the world’s shortest Airbus A380 route between Dubai and Doha.
The service began on December 01, 2016 and covers a total flying distance of 379km with a block time of around 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Outbound flight EK 841 departs Dubai at 0745hrs, arriving in Doha at 0805hrs. The return flight, EK 842, departs Doha at 0950hrs, arriving in Dubai at 1200hrs.
The rationale for such a short flight in what was designed to be a long haul airliner is to give a consistent A380 service for passengers connecting from Doha.
