One of the top airlines in the UAE, Emirates, has announced that it will increase its service to Sydney and Melbourne as well as reopen its route between Dubai and Christchurch, New Zealand, through Sydney.
As per details, Emirates would resume operations on the Dubai-Christchurch route, which had been discontinued due to COVID-19 restrictions, on March 26, 2023. Additionally, Emirates will increase its operations on the Dubai-Melbourne route from two to three daily flights, via Singapore. Beginning on May 1, a third nonstop flight will go to Sydney.
By the middle of 2023, Emirates will be running 63 flights per week to Australia, with a weekly capacity of more than 55,000 passengers between major cities.
By expanding access to Australian attractions and expanding trade and economic opportunities, the enhanced capacity will boost tourism.
Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) of Emirates, speaking on the development, said that new flights to Sydney and Melbourne will add roughly 500,000 seats to and from Australia each year.
He added that the relocation was a significant achievement demonstrating Emirates’ steadfast commitment to operating flights in Australia.
