Emirates plans special flight to mark UAE National Day


Emirates will operate a historic one-off A380 flight around the UAE in an effort to celebrate the country's multicultural community.

UAE residents who wish to take to the skies on this special flight can log onto the airline's website before November 19.

The flight, EK2019, will be airborne on November 29 for around one-and-a-half hours, with the airline hoping to fly "as many nationalities on board as possible". 

That's not all. The A380 has commissioned for the flight to be decorated with a bespoke "Year of Tolerance" livery, showing a panorama of people from diverse cultures and backgrounds holding hands with one another.

Much like the UAE, which is home to 200 nationalities, Emirates employs over 160 nationalities and draws strength from the diversity and shared values that brings its employees together.
