Coming from a country collecting titles and headlines, the shortest Airbus A380 flight is now available to you courtesy of Emirates.
The UAE-based airline had announced earlier this year its plans to roll out short, daily flights between Dubai and Muscat, Oman, onboard its Airbus A380.
Its goal was to "launch the world's shortest flight on the world's biggest commercial plane," which was supposedly going to take an hour and 15 minutes while using the double-decker A380 - which Emirates already flies to over 57 cities.
On July 1, the airline company announced in a series of tweets that the flight is now operating and will actually take 40 minutes between both Arab cities.
"Oman is an important destination for Emirates, and we will continue to look at ways to grow our operations in the market to best serve our customers," Divisional Senior Vice President Commercial Operations Centre Sheikh Majid Al Mualla said.
CEO of Oman Airports Shaikh Aimen Bin Ahmad Al Hosni displayed some excitement, saying the daily flights onboard the A380 - which will go until next September - "is a tribute to the efforts of our strategic partner, Emirates Airlines."
This move is also a sign of readiness from Muscat International Airport's side, with an infrastructure capable of accommodating a double-decker airplane.
