New service will increase passenger capacity on Dubai-Sydney route
Dubai: Emirates is set to introduce a fourth daily service from Dubai to Sydney from March 25 next year, complementing its existing three daily A380 services and improving connections globally.
The new service will be operated by Emirates’ A380 aircraft and will increase passenger capacity on the route by 6,846 seats a week, inbound and outbound between Sydney and Emirates’ hub in Dubai. It represents a 7.3 per cent increase in capacity for Emirates’ Australian services.
The move will provide passengers travelling from Europe and North Africa greater connectivity to Australia. It also builds on Emirates’ partnership with Qantas, meeting continued demand for services to Dubai and complementing Qantas’ re-routing of its current Sydney to London service via Singapore (instead of Dubai).
With Emirates’ new service, passengers can depart from Sydney in the afternoon and arrive in main European cities the following morning.
It also introduces a new option for passengers to depart London and main European cities in the morning with an afternoon arrival in Sydney the next day with a short connection in Dubai.
