Emirates will soon boost services to Sydney, Australia and Bangkok, Thailand, with additional flights. From March 29, Emirates will introduce an extra thrice-weekly service from Dubai to Sydney via Bangkok.
Initially operating on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, the airline will increase this to a daily service from May 1.
On May 1, Emirates’ new Dubai-Bangkok-Sydney daily service will also be extended to Auckland in New Zealand, replacing the current Dubai-Sydney-Auckland daily service which will then terminate in Sydney. This move opens up new connections between Bangkok and Sydney, and Bangkok and Auckland.
Emirates will fly its Boeing 777-300 aircraft in three-class configuration on the Dubai-Bangkok-Sydney-Auckland route, offering 18, 42 and 320 seats in first, business and economy classes respectively, plus 23 tonnes of bellyhold space for cargo.
Said Ghaith Al Ghaith, Emirates’ executive vice-president for commercial operations worldwide: “Bangkok and Sydney are key commercial and tourism centres in their respective countries. Demand for passenger and cargo capacity into and out of these two cities has remained constantly high, and we are confident the additional capacity from our new service will be welcomed by both travellers and shippers alike.”
