Emirates Adds Four Destinations In 2005

Expands Network to Seychelles, Seoul, Hamburg and Geneva

Emirates, the Dubai-based international airline, has disclosed that it will start passenger flights from Dubai to another three cities in 2005, in Europe and the Far East.

When added to the airline's new three-weekly route to the Seychelles, due to start on 2 January as announced earlier, the new routes will expand the Emirates network to 81 destinations by the end of next year.

On 1 May Emirates will start operating daily flights to Seoul, the capital and largest city of South Korea.

Daily services to Hamburg will start on 30 October, making it the airline's fourth gateway to Germany, presently served by five daily flights to Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich.

On 1 December, Geneva will become the second Swiss city with daily Emirates services, besides Zurich.

His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Chairman of Emirates, said: "In 2005, Emirates will continue to grow and expand to new destinations where we know there is a demand for our services.

"In doing so we are putting our airline within reach of an ever-growing customer base, giving them more choices and an opportunity to experience first-hand the high quality of the Emirates product that has been the foundation of our success.

He added: "We constantly invest in advanced equipment and staff training to meet the highest passenger expectations and requirements. Our customers keep rewarding us for the high priority we give to providing them the best possible travel experience."
