Emirates offers the world’s shortest Airbus A380 service

Emirates now offers the world’s shortest Airbus A380 service. The Gulf carrier upgraded the Boeing 777-200LR aircraft that previously operated flights EK857 and EK858 between Dubai International Airport and Kuwait International Airport to superjumbo aircraft. Lasting one hour and 45 minutes in duration, the flight is the shortest A380 service globally. Emirates offers the route five times daily with both Boeing and Airbus aircraft. The carrier’s double-decker aircraft features 17 private suites in first class and 76 flat-bed seats in business class. Kuwait became the second destination in the Middle East to be served by Emirates’ A380, joining Riyadh International Airport in Saudi Arabia.

Source said, Actually, the A380 doesn't guzzle or, even burn, any "gas", ie gasoline. It's turbine powered, like practically all modern, medium and large aircraft. Its fuel is Jet A1, an aviation standard variety of kerosene or paraffin.
