Emirates to deploy its revamped B777 to Maldives

Dubai airline Emirates will begin regular flights to the Maldives on June 1 with its latest Boeing 777-300 ER craft.

Tailored with first-class private suites,  the latest Emirates aircraft features comfortably designed seats, upgrades and latest version of the ice flight entertainment systems across all the cabins.

The new suites include seats that recline into a fully flat-bed and can be placed in a ‘zero-gravity’ state which is inspired by NASA technology, for a feeling of weightlessness while flying.

The industry’s ‘first virtual windows’ can be experienced by customers seated in suites in the middles aisle where it projects a view from outside the aircraft using real-time fiber-optic camera technology.

Cabins also include privacy panels between seats, shoe storage area, footrest, and a personal mini-bar.

Currently, the airline operates Boeing 777-300 ER to Brussels, Geneva, Vienna, Tokyo (Haneda), London Stansted and Riyadh and plans to deploy the aircraft on flights to Kuwait from June onward.

The Maldives will become the first destination in the South Asian region to be served on a regular basis by the new aircraft.
