Emirates Airlines will now fly the shortest A380 flight in the world
Emirates has launched the shortest A380 flight in the world, which will fly from Dubai to Muscat.
It will cover the distance of 340KM in only 40 minutes, which apparently is only 5 minutes more than a crew of 42 people take to clean up the iconic double-decker aeroplane.

Emirates had earlier announced double daily A380 flights from July 1. The airline will operate the A380 to and from Muscat International Airport (MCT). And so, Muscat will become Emirates’ shortest scheduled A380 flight, flying a distance of 340 kilometres each way.
Emirates has been posting a number of different interesting facts to highlight how special this record flight will be.
This announcement will now also allow travellers from Muscat to connect to various parts of the world, such as New York, London, Mumbai, and Singapore via an A380.
The Emirates morning flight will depart Dubai at 0825hrs, arriving in Muscat at 0940hrs. And the Emirates late afternoon flight will depart Dubai at 1610hrs and will arrive in Muscat at 1725hrs. Flight timings will vary with the commencement of the winter schedule in late October.
