Nice is currently served with a daily flight operated by a Boeing 777-300ER. The deployment of an A380 represents a capacity increase of 44 per cent on the route. With 3,633 weekly seats in each direction, Emirates will offer more seats to the Middle East and beyond than any other international airline, highlighting Nice’s importance as part of the airline’s global network. Enabling an increase in passenger numbers will also result in additional tourism revenues for Nice and the region.

Emirates is also working with Monacair to offer helicopter transfers between Nice Airport and Monaco, including a limousine service from Monaco’s heliport to their final destination.

 

ETIHAD AIRWAYS

Etihad Airways is introducing its award-winning A380 on the Abu Dhabi – Paris route this summer as part of seasonal adjustments to the airline’s fleet deployment plan.

Featuring the carrier’s revolutionary The Residence – the world’s first three-room suite on a commercial airliner – the aircraft will operate on one of its twice-daily services to the French capital between July 1 and October 28.

Paris becomes the airline’s latest A380 long haul destination following London, Sydney, New York and Melbourne. With the aircraft upgrade from a 328-seat Boeing 777, Etihad Airways is able to offer an all-A380 daily service from Paris to both Melbourne and Sydney via the airline’s Abu Dhabi hub.

The additional capacity will provide business and leisure travellers from the UAE the benefit of experiencing the double decker aircraft – with a living room, bedroom and shower in The Residence, and more premium seats in the First Apartments and Business Studios – to meet demand to another popular long haul destination during the peak summer months.

 

QATAR AIRWAYS

Earlier this year, Qatar Airways officially opened a new Premium Lounge at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport.

At an official ribbon cutting ceremony, Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar Al Baker updated attending media on the airline’s forthcoming launch of direct flights to Nice, commencing July 4. The airline will operate five-weekly services from its home and hub Hamad International Airport, Doha. The route will be served by the airline’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

At more than 1,000 sq m, the Qatar Airways Premium Lounge at Paris-Charles de Gaulle offers Qatar Airways First and Business Class passengers a sophisticated, modern and spacious environment in which to relax and commence their five-star journey experience.
