Emirates to resume pre-pandemic Aussi ops
Two months from today, on 26 March 2023, services between Melbourne and Emirates' Dubai hub via Singapore will increase from two to three flights per day, with a third direct service to begin to Sydney from 1 May.
The expansion of services follows the airline's recent announcement concerning double daily flights to Brisbane, which will start from 1 June 2023 and bring the total number of the carrier's weekly flights between Dubai and Australia to 63.
Emirates' return to pre-pandemic levels comes amidst another busy period for air travel. The two services will operate on B777-300ER, offering a belly cargo capacity of 22 t.
Melbourne Airport CEO Lorie Argus: "The extra capacity is also great news for Victorian exporters, with the Triple Seven providing additional freight opportunities into Asia and the Middle East." (ah)
