Beginning on February 1, 2024, passengers traveling on EK408 and EK409 will have access to an additional Premium Economy service between Melbourne and Dubai, provided by Emirates, the largest international airline in the world.
Following the introduction of Emirates’ Premium Economy service from Melbourne in April 2023, when the new cabin was made available on the daily EK406 and EK407 services, is the additional service. Emirates now provides nearly 800 weekly Premium Economy seats between Melbourne and its hub in Dubai with this most recent development.
The Premium Economy cabin, which is staffed by a team of Cabin Crew members exclusively dedicated to Premium Economy passengers, offers a signature experience unequaled in the industry. It features luxurious cream leather seats with wood veneer, a generous baggage allowance, and an amazing dining experience.
With the addition of Premium Economy service, the airline will have nearly 3200 seats available for travel throughout Australia, including two daily flights from Sydney and two daily flights from Melbourne. This will help the airline maintain its position as one of the primary markets it serves with its best-in-class Premium Economy cabins.
The additional service of Premium Economy to Melbourne adds to a bumper period of increased operations from Emirates in Australia, reaffirming its ongoing commitment to growing its services down under and providing eager travellers with more access to and from the country.
