Emirates to add tenth daily London service

31 Mar 2016 by BusinessTraveller

Emirates is to add a tenth daily service between Dubai and London from October.

The new B777-300ER flight to Gatwick will be the fourth daily service to the south London airport, and the tenth in total to the capital, complementing the Gulf carrier’s six daily flights to Heathrow.

The new service will launch on October 1, with EK023 departing Dubai at 0950, landing into Gatwick at 1430. The return leg EK024 will leave London at 1650, landing back into Dubai at 0240 the following day.

The B777-300ER serving the route will be configured for eight first class suites, 42 in business class, and 310 in economy.

The news comes just days after Emirates started its sixth daily frequency to Heathrow, initially operating the route with B777-300ER aircraft but with plans to upgrade flights to the carrier’s Airbus A380 superjumbo from June (see news February 12).
