Emirates extends Newcastle chauffeur option to include Edinburgh area

25 Jun 2009 by Mark Caswell

Edinburgh-based premium passengers looking to fly on Emirates’ service from Newcastle to Dubai can now take advantage of the free chauffeur drive option.

The service has now been extended to business class passengers living or working within “EH” Edinburgh postcodes.

Said Laurie Berryman, Emirates’ area manager UK north: “Customer feedback has shown that some of our Edinburgh-based passengers prefer to travel on our service from Newcastle [rather than on the carrier's service from Glasgow], so we are pleased to extend our chauffeur service to enable them to travel in comfort from their home or office directly to and from Newcastle International Airport.”

The extension of the service to Edinburgh postcodes (around 100 miles drive from Newcastle) is significantly above the standard 70-mile radius offered to business class passengers travelling to / from Newcastle airport. There is no mileage restriction for first class passengers.

Emirates operates daily flights from both Glasgow and Newcastle to Dubai. For more information visit
