Emirates to Double Services to Dublin - Better Auckland Connections

Emirates will serve Dublin with a second daily non-stop flight from September 1, providing better connections for New Zealand.

Timings have been scheduled to facilitate more effective onward connections at Dubai to major destinations in Australia and New Zealand, with shorter journey times into Auckland, Melbourne and Brisbane. Following the partnership agreement with Qantas, Emirates will continue to offer connections to almost 60 cities across Australia and New Zealand.

The second Boeing 777-300ER service between Dubai and Dublin will feature 360 seats in a three-class configuration - eight seats in First Class, 42 in Business Class and 310 in Economy Class. Flight EK163 will leave Dubai at 4pm to reach Dublin at 8.50pm. The return flight EK164 will depart Dublin at 10.20pm, and will arrive in Dubai at 8.55am the next day. 

“Air travel is indispensable for tourism and trade, the major engines of Ireland’s resurgent economy.  Emirates’ expanded schedule will offer better connectivity for our customers when travelling between Dublin and Dubai and onwards to the rest of our network, increasing access to emerging markets and encouraging investment and innovation. There is a clear traffic flow taking place from Dublin to a number of destinations in our network, therefore boosting connections makes business sense” said Tim Clark, President, Emirates airline.

“We are delighted that Emirates has decided to go double daily on the route just two years after launching its Dublin service. I know that Dublin has been one of Emirates’ most successful ever route launches and the seven new flights per week will offer additional choice to both business and leisure passengers travelling to and from the Middle East and beyond,” said DAA Chief Executive, Kevin Toland.

All classes of the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft will be equipped with Emirates’ award-winning ice entertainment system with up to 1,600 channels of on-demand entertainment, including movies, television programmes, games, audio books and music from across the world.  

Emirates SkyCargo, the airline’s award-winning cargo division, will offer an additional 25 tonnes of belly-hold capacity on every flight, supporting trade and commerce links out of Ireland. Key exports from Ireland include seafood, dairy products, chocolates, beef and botox.
