Emirates, the biggest international airline in the world, has increased the number of daily A380 flights it operates to Gatwick Airport. To accommodate ongoing demand before the holiday rush, the airline is expanding its UK operations.
The additional frequency will offer enhanced capacity with more than 1,000 seats to/from Gatwick to Dubai, every day. Emirates flight EK11 will depart Dubai at 2:50hrs, flight EK15 will depart at 7:40hrs, and flight EK09 will depart at 14:25hrs – offering customers even more flexibility and travel choices.
Emirates currently serves the UK with 119 weekly flights across seven UK hubs including six times daily to London Heathrow; three times daily to London Gatwick; daily service to London Stansted; three times daily to Manchester; double daily service to Birmingham; daily flights to Newcastle; and a daily service to Glasgow.
Emirates’ extensive network spans to 130 destinations, across six continents. Emirates’ home and hub, Dubai, remains a very popular holiday and stopover destination. Visitors from the UK can take advantage of the new Dubai Experience platform that enables customers to easily browse, create and book their own customized itineraries including flights, hotel stay, visits to key attractions, and other dining and leisure experiences in Dubai and the UAE.
