Emirates launch third daily flight to Dubai

Emirates launch third daily flight to Dubai

EMIRATES Airline is boosting its route from Manchester with the introduction of a third daily non-stop flight to Dubai to cater for a continued growth in demand.
 
With the introduction of the additional flight, Emirates will become the first carrier to operate three daily flights from Manchester to the same long haul destination.
 
The new service, which stars on May 1, 2011, will increase Emirates’ capacity from Manchester by 25 per cent.
 
The additional flight will depart daily from Manchester at 9.40am, giving North West travellers a broader choice of flights to Dubai and beyond, with enhanced connections to Thailand, and cities in the Indian sub-continent and Middle East.
 
This all comes less than a year after Emirates introduced the double-decker Airbus A380 on its lunchtime service from Manchester – the first time any airline had operated the ‘superjumbo’ on services from a regional airport.

The A380’s arrival heralded greater traveller choice with the introduction of First Class cabins, alongside Business and Economy, on Emirates’ flights from Manchester.
 
"Since bringing the A380 to Manchester last September the route to Dubai has been one of Emirates’ strongest performers and we saw a full compliment of 517 in November so we know the traffic is there and the third daily service underlines the the importance of the Middle East to our longer term ambitions as an airport,” said Andrew Harrison, Managing Director of Manchester Airport.
 
The new service will be operated by an Airbus A330-200 aircraft in a three-class configuration seating 12 First Class, 42 Business Class and 183 Economy Class passengers.

The new flight EK022 will depart Manchester (Terminal 1) at 9.40am daily, arriving into Dubai at 7.50pm. The return flight from Dubai EK021 departs at 3am, arriving in Manchester at 7.55am (all times local).
