Emirates to launch second daily Amsterdam flight

31 Jul 2013 by GrahamSmith

Emirates is launching a second daily non-stop flight between Dubai and Amsterdam in December.

The Gulf airline is deploying a Boeing 777-200LR on the service, which will add capacity of more than 3,700 seats per week in both directions.

The current daily flight has been operated by an Airbus A380 since last August (see online news, August 2012). Beforehand, Emirates deployed a B777 on the route.

The second service, which begins on December 4, will feature 266 seats in a three-class configuration - eight seats in first, 42 in business and 216 in economy.

Flight EK149 will leave Dubai at 1610 and arrive at Amsterdam at 2040. Return flight EK150 will depart Amsterdam at 2210, landing in Dubai at 0740 the next day.

Hubert Frach, divisional senior vice president, commercial operations west, said: "Our decision to add another daily service to Amsterdam is a direct result of a surge in customer demand.

"The enhanced capacity and schedule will offer our customers more choice when travelling between Amsterdam and Dubai and onwards to a multitude of destinations in the Indian subcontinent, Africa, Far East and Australasia."

Emirates first launched a Dubai to Amsterdam service in 2010.
