The reintroduction of the Emirates A380 to Narita reflects the airline’s long-standing commitment to Japan’s tourism and travel sector. 

By adding capacity, the airline aims to serve the pent-up demand for travel into Japan along with providing choice and flexibility for travellers through its daily service to Osaka operated by a Boeing 777.


Currently, tourists from more than 60 countries can travel to Japan visa-free and without official tour guides.

The Emirates A380 experience remains highly sought after by travellers, offering 14 First Class suites and 76 lie-flat seats in Business Class.
