Emirates has celebrated the launch of two new Airbus A380 services on the same day - to Los Angeles and Vienna.

The LA flight marked its second daily A380 service, meaning that the Dubai carrier now serves nearly 1,000 passengers travelling to the US city each day.

For the LA journey, the A380 was decked out in specially-designed Dodgers branding - the airline having agreed a sponsorship deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers in February.

Passengers travelling beyond LA to nearby destinations can take advantage of Emirates’ partnerships with Virgin America and Alaska Airlines, connecting on to cities such as Monterey, Portland, Las Vegas and Cancun.

Vienna meanwhile is a new addition to the airline’s family of A380 destinations, now totalling 41, and is the only service on the world’s largest passenger aircraft into the Austrian capital.

Emirates flies twice daily to Vienna, with the three-class A380 and a Boeing 777-300ER which contains seating capacity for 360.

It has served the Vienna route since 2004.
