A look back.
Emirates on 3rd March 2006, introduced its second daily service from Dubai to Perth (EK424/425) initially operated from (3rd March to 25th March 2006) on a trial period using Airbus A340-313X A6-ERS msn139 operating the inaugural service.
The first B777 aircraft of Emirates to fly this service on 2nd September 2006, when on that day B777-21H (LR) A6-EWI c/n 35589 operated the service/s.
Emirates announced on 10th July 2018, its intentions to drop its (EK424/425) service/s from its network, leaving just its daily flight to operated from Dubai to Perth (EK420/421) operated by Airbus A380 aircraft.
Thanks for the memories.
