Emirates will grow its Airbus A380 route network with new service to Mumbai this summer. The carrier plans to deploy the world’s largest passenger plane on one of its existing daily services between Dubai International Airport and Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport from July. Emirates will become the second airline to deploy the double-decker aircraft into India following Singapore Airlines, launching A380 services between Singapore Changi Airport and Mumbai on May 30. India lifted a ban on operating the A380 into the country earlier this year. Other Indian airports certified for A380 operations include Delhi’s Indira Gandi International Airport, Bengaluru International Airport and Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport.
