Emirates has added three to four flights to a popular destination due to increasing demand.
By increasing its service to two major cities – Sydney and Melbourne, the airline has taken a significant step in the resumption of its Australia capacity
This will also restart services to Christchurch, New Zealand via Sydney, offering a new path for Australians across the trans-Tasman route.
Melbourne will increase from two to three daily services between Emirates’ Dubai hub via Singapore from March 26, with a third direct service to also begin to Sydney from May 1. The service increase follows the airline’s recent announcement around double daily flights to Brisbane, starting from June 1.
The Christchurch service via Sydney, beginning March 26, will offer the only opportunity for passengers between the two cities to fly on an A380, Emirates’ flagship aircraft.
The newly restored third Dubai-Melbourne service means Emirates is providing a new connectivity option between Singapore and Melbourne to serve strong demand between both cities.
The two services will operate on a three-class Boeing-777 300ER offering passengers Economy, Business and First Class seats.
By mid-year, Emirates will be operating 63 weekly services to Australia with the capacity to transport more than 55,000 passengers per week to and from its major cities.
