Emirates to launch fourth daily service to Sydney

New service to be operated by Emirates' iconic A380 aircraft from March 25, 2018.

United Arab Emirates, September 13, 2017

Emirates is set to introduce a fourth daily service from Dubai to Sydney from March 25, 2018, complementing its existing three daily A380 services and improving connections globally.

The new service will be operated by Emirates' iconic A380 aircraft and will increase passenger capacity on the route by 6,846 seats a week, inbound and outbound between Sydney and Emirates' hub in Dubai, and represents a 7.3 per cent increase in capacity for Emirates' Australian services.

The move will provide passengers travelling from Europe and North Africa greater connectivity to Australia. It also builds on Emirates' partnership with Qantas, meeting continued demand for services to Dubai and complementing Qantas' re-routing of its current Sydney to London service via Singapore (instead of Dubai).

Emirates' new service will offer passengers an afternoon departure from Sydney and a convenient arrival in main European cities the following morning. It also introduces a new option for passengers to depart London and main European cities in the morning with an afternoon arrival in Sydney the next day with a short connection in Dubai.

Emirates customers will also be able to enjoy seamless 'A380 to A380' connections to 48 destinations within Emirates' global network via its hub in Dubai.

Earlier this year Emirates announced plans to enhance its Australian services, with a third daily service set to be introduced between Dubai and Brisbane from December 1, 2017 and operated by a B777-200LR. Emirates will also upgauge its third daily flight between Dubai and Melbourne from a B777-300ER to an A380 from March 25, 2018. This change will ensure all three of Emirates' daily flights to Melbourne will be serviced by A380 aircraft.

All passengers can enjoy over 2,500 channels on Emirates' award-winning inflight entertainment system ice, gourmet food and wine across all classes and generous baggage allowances. Emirates recently improved its onboard connectivity with up to 20MB of complementary onboard Wi-Fi.
