Emirates continues to develop and rebuild its route network with a host of exciting announcements in recent days.
The airline says it’ll resume its Tokyo-Haneda service from the 2nd of April, 2023. The Boeing 777 has been selected as the aircraft to operate EK321. The flight will depart Dubai at 07:50 and arrive in Haneda at 22:35. Following a 2-and-a-half-hour layover, the plane will leave the following day at 00:05 and arrive in Dubai at 06:20.
Japan has experienced post-pandemic travel and tourism, and Emirates’ resumption of services is the latest vote of confidence to Japan. Emirates launched their Haneda route in 2013. Since it’s been a fundamental part of connecting the locations and boosting travellers’ choice and flexibility.
Meanwhile, the airline announced it would double its service to Brisbane, Australia. Complimenting a daily Airbus A380 service, a 777-300ER will also operate daily from the city to Dubai. It results in almost 12,000 seats per week. The announcement comes following celebrations of 20 years of serving Brisbane. This is a pivotal gateway to Australia’s global network and part of its recovery from the pandemic.
The 777-300ER service will operate as EK430/431. EK430 will depart Dubai at 02:30 to arrive in Brisbane at 22:20. The return flight, EK431, will depart Brisbane at 02:50 and arrive in Dubai at 11:00.
Our second daily service to Brisbane begins as we proudly celebrate 20 years of flying to the sunshine state. Not only will this service cater to the demand of Australians looking to travel overseas, but also welcome more travellers and tourists from Dubai and across our global network to enjoy Queensland, Australia’s tourism mecca.Barry Brown, Divisional Vice President Australasia at Emirates
