Dubai carrier Emirates has resumed passenger services to London Stansted (STN), its third London gateway, with a daily flight.
The airline said that it had advanced plans to increase capacity from five-weekly services to a daily flight starting August 1.
With the return of services to Stansted, Emirates has ramped up its operations to London with nine daily flights, including six daily flights to Heathrow and a double daily flight to Gatwick.
London Stansted will be served by Emirates’ wide-body Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
Emirates flight EK65 will depart Dubai at 8.50am and arrive in London Stansted at 1.30pm local time.
The return flight, EK68 will depart London Stansted at 9.10pm and arrive in Dubai at 7.10am the following day.

Emirates currently serves seven gateways in the UK. By October 2022, the airline will be serving the country with 110 weekly flights, including: six times daily to London Heathrow; daily service to London Stansted; double daily A380 service to Gatwick; three times daily to Manchester, including a double daily A380 service (starting October 1, 2022); double daily service to Birmingham; five weekly flights to Newcastle; and a daily service to Glasgow.
The airline is also currently serving London Gatwick with three daily flights until August 3, 2022. The added frequency to Gatwick is to absorb demand and accommodate passengers affected by capacity adjustments on flights from London Heathrow.
