Emirates is boosting operations by 31%. The airline said in a statement that it has further plans to ramp up seat capacity in its latest published northern summer schedule starting 26 March 2023.
In the past months, the airline has reintroduced services to 5 cities, launched flights to 1 new destination (Tel Aviv), and added 251 weekly flights onto existing routes. It said it will continue the roll-out of service enhancements in the air and on the ground.
In the UK, Emirates will be reintroducing the iconic double-decker A380 to Glasgow from 26th March, and at Birmingham from 1st July.
The airline will also serve Stansted with a second daily service from 1st May, taking Emirates’ London operations up to 11 daily flights.
By this summer, Emirates will be serving the UK with 119 weekly flights, including:
Six daily A380 services to London Heathrow; three times daily A380 service to Gatwick; double daily service to Stansted; three times daily A380 service to Manchester; double daily service to Birmingham; daily service to Newcastle; and a daily A380 service to Glasgow.
Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Chief Commercial Officer said: “Emirates continues to expand its global network and deploy its capacity to meet travel demand across the world.
“Our financial year started relatively quietly as we held back our ramp-up until the planned northern runway rehabilitation program at Dubai International airport was completed in June.
“From July 2022 onwards, it’s been non-stop expansion.”
“Customer demand has been very strong, and our forward bookings are also robust.
“Emirates is working hard on several fronts – to bring back operating capacity as quickly as the ecosystem can manage, while also upgrading our fleet and product to ensure our customers always enjoy the best possible Emirates experience.
“So far, 4 of our A380 aircraft have been completely refurbished with our new cabin interiors and Premium Economy seats, and more will enter service as our US$2 billion cabin and service enhancement program picks up pace.”
In the coming months, established routes to Europe, Australia and Africa will be served with more Emirates flights, while in East Asia, more cities are seeing route restarts.
