Emirates A380 lands in Malpensa

On Jul. 29, 2010, the Emirates A.380-800 “A6-EDG” flying as EK93 made its maiden Dubai-Milan Malpensa flight for the official presentation of the Milan Football Club shirt, sporting the Fly Emirates sponsor, made by Adidas, whose image appeared magnified on the left hand side of the fuselage, aft of the front door on the main deck. For the moment, the aircraft will not be used on a daily scheduled service between Dubai and Milan even if it be used on routes to Milan and Rome Fiumicino in the future. Actually, the Emirates one, was not the first A380 to land in Italy (it was the first revenue flight with the Super Jumbo): on Jul. 14, 2010, a Lufthansa’s one had already made a stop in Malpensa during a test flight from Germany.
