Hubert Frach, divisional senior vice president, commercial operations, West, Emirates, commented, “It will also be a more convenient point for travellers from the greater Edinburgh area, and beyond, such as Aberdeen and Dundee, to travel with Emirates to Dubai and onward to destinations across our network. Edinburgh is a very popular leisure and business destination, and the new service will offer our customers from across our global network, particularly from key inbound markets such as Asia and Australia, a direct option to the city via our Dubai hub.”
The new service will be operated by an Emirates Boeing B777-300ER with eight first class private suites, 42 business class lie flat seats and 304 economy class seats.
Flight EK024 will depart Edinburgh at 20:15 and arrive in Dubai at 06:40 the next morning. Flight EK023 will depart Dubai daily at 09:55 and arrive in Edinburgh at 14:50. (all times local).
