Emirates Plane Damaged at Moscow Airport, Flight to Dubai Canceled

An Emirates Airbus A380 was damaged at Moscow's Domodedovo Airport on March 27, leading to the cancellation of a flight to Dubai. The incident occurred when a ground vehicle collided with the aircraft, causing significant damage. No one was injured, but the plane will need repairs.

In a report released by Simple Flying, the Emirates flight EK134 was set to leave Moscow for Dubai International Airport at 16:35, arriving in Dubai at 23:15. However, before passengers boarded, a yellow ground vehicle hit the plane, damaging its underside. Pictures on social media show the extent of the damage, suggesting the aircraft will be out of action for some time.

Emirates responded promptly, stating that the safety of passengers and crew is their top priority. Affected passengers were booked on later flights. Emirates expressed regret for any inconvenience caused by this incident.

The damaged plane, an Airbus A380 with registration A6-EDM, has been with Emirates since September 2010. It's designed to carry 489 passengers in a three-cabin layout. The aircraft has flown nearly 46,000 hours over 5,678 flights.
