Following a busy week, Emirates has announced it has taken another significant and exciting step at rebuilding Australian capacity with new flights.
The airline will increase its services to Melbourne and Sydney. While in addition, it’ll recommence services to Christchurch via Sydney. Improving the offering on the critical trans-Tasman routing.
Back in Australia, from March 26, Melbourne will see three daily services from Emirates. This flight will fly via Singapore and be operated by a three-class Boeing 777-300ER.
From May 1, Emirates will also begin a third direct flight to Sydney. A 777-300ER will also operate this with economy, business and first class on offer to passengers.
For over 25 years we have provided services for Australia since our first flight to Melbourne in 1996. During this time, we have proudly transported over 40 million passengers and continued flying to Australia during the pandemic. We continue to record significant demand for our services, so we’re dedicated to offering Australians and travellers more options to travel, including the likes of our new Premium Economy cabin with Australia being one of the first markets to be offered this class.Adnan Kazim, Chief Commercial Officer Emirates Airline
By the middle of 2023, Emirates expects to operate 63 weekly services to Australia, transporting more than 55,000 passengers between Australian cities and Dubai. Melbourne and Sydney will also see therefore restored flying at pre-pandemic levels. This is a significant milestone achieved by the Dubai-based carrier.
It is also a vote of confidence to Australia once more that continues to recover from the effects of the pandemic and restore critical services from cities.
When are we going to see return of flights to Adelaide?
Here’s hoping! They’ve been pretty aggressive with their expansion to other cities.
Will Adelaide ever return I wonder?
Hopefully at some point!
Interesting that the flight will stop in Singapore
Triangular flights are pretty popular for Emirates.
