Emirates adds sixth daily flight from Heathrow to Dubai International

Posted: 19-Feb-16 10:01

Starting next spring, Emirates will be operating an additional flight from London to Dubai, adding to a new total of six daily flights connecting the UK capital with the popular Emirati holiday destination. According to an official statement release from the airline this latest addition to Emirates' UK services was in "direct response to continued strong demand".

Emirates adds sixth daily flight from Heathrow to Dubai International

Scheduled to take off on 27th March 2016 for the first time, Emirates' latest new flight connecting London Heathrow with Dubai International Airport will become the airline's sixth daily service operating between both cities.

The news were revealed during an official statement release by Emirates in which they also revealed that the new flight would initially be carried out aboard a three-class Boeing B777-300ER aircraft (which means that for the first couple of months it will be the only route to London not serviced by an the Airbus A380 fleet) before it's eventually upgraded to a superjumbo starting 1st June 2016.

The new flight linking London to Dubai will operate as EK032 and will depart London Heathrow (LHR) at 19:50 and touching down at Dubai's International Airport (DXB) in the early hours of the following day at 05:50. The return flight, operating as EK031 will leave Dubai at 11:30 and arrive into London Heathrow on the same day at 16:10.

At present, Emirates' already five operational routes linking London to Dubai take off from Heathrow at 09:05, 14:15, 16:55, 20:40 and 22:15 with the return legs departing Dubai at 02:30, 07:45, 09:40, 14:15 and 15:45.

The leading Emirati airline is expecting to receive delivery of 37 brand new 37 aircraft this year (including 21 Airbus 380), adding to their already ultra-modern fleet.

Emirates is Dubai's flagship carrier and is known for offering innovative in-flight services across its modern fleet, with the latest leading technology for onboard entertainment as well as a highly-praised quality of in-flight cuisine and the highest standards of excellence for overall service. It has been the receiver of numerous prestigious accolades over time, including Aviation Company of the Year 2014 and Aircraft Operator Award 2014 by the Aviation Industry Awards and more recently Emirates SkyCargo was named International Air Cargo Carrier of the Year 2015.

But as it turns out Emirates is not the only Middle Eastern airline expanding their services to the UK capital and one of the UK's busiest airports. As revealed recently by The Sunday Times, Oman Air has just bought two landing and take-off slots at London Heathrow from Air France-KLM, at a whopping cost of $75 million (approximately £52 million in pounds sterling), a record figure beating the previous slot purchase record of $60 million.
