Emirates’ A380 Lands in Casablanca, Morocco

DALLAS — Emirates (EK) has replaced its Boeing 777-300ER flights to Casablanca’s Mohammed V International Airport (CMN) with its flagship aircraft Airbus A380.

The first EK flight with the Superjumbo to the port city and commercial hub in western Morocco took place yesterday, April 15, 2023. The aircraft, registered as A6-EOI, is an 8-year-old Airbus A380-861, wearing the Journey to the Future livery.

The daily A380 service replaces the Triple Seven EK service used between Dubai and Casablanca. The UAE-based full-service carrier has flown this route for 21 years. With the return of the airline’s A380, inbound traffic for Morocco increases.
