Emirates Announces Nz Flights Via Bangkok

Emirates, the Dubai-based international airline, is to add Bangkok as a destination on flights out of New Zealand from May 1.

From that date a new Dubai-Bangkok-Sydney daily return service will be extended to Auckland.

In bringing in the new service, Emirates will have an all-Boeing 777 operation out of Auckland, with three daily flights from Auckland to Dubai. The airline will cease operating the Airbus A340-500 aircraft on the Auckland-Sydney route at that time.

Emirates will fly its Boeing 777-300 aircraft in three-class configuration on the Dubai-Bangkok-Sydney-Auckland route, offering 18, 42 and 320 seats in first, business and economy classes respectively, plus 23 tonnes of bellyhold space for cargo.

Said Ghaith Al Ghaith, Emirates' Executive Vice President for Commercial Operations Worldwide: "With this service, Emirates will be opening up another desirable travel option, as well as providing further capacity for New Zealand exports."

Flight EK 419 will take off from Auckland at 3.50pm daily, arriving in Sydney at 5.15pm (local time). It will depart from Sydney at 6.45pm, arriving in Bangkok at 1am the next morning. The flight will then depart Bangkok at 2.30am to arrive in Dubai at 5.35am (local time).

EK418 will depart Dubai International Airport at 9am, arriving in Bangkok at 6.10pm, before flying onward to Australia at 7.50pm, to land in Sydney at 7.45 the next morning. It will depart Sydney at 9.15am, arriving in Auckland at 3.15pm.
