Second Daily Flight To Düsseldorf

22 February 2006

Emirates Introduces Second Daily Flight To Düsseldorf, With Nz Connections

Emirates, the Dubai-based international airline, is introducing a second daily non-stop service from Dubai to Düsseldorf on May 1, increasing both seat and cargo capacity on the route.

On the second daily flight the airline will use a 237-seat Airbus A330-200 aircraft, configured in three classes with 12 seats in First, 42 in Business and 183 in Economy. The current single daily flight is operated by Boeing 777-300.

Introduction of the second daily service will mean connections at Dubai in both directions for New Zealand travellers.

Northbound, Dubai departures will be at 8.50am and 2.45pm. Flights from Dusseldorf will arrive in Dubai at 5.35am and 11.55pm.

Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline, said: "The launch of Emirates' second daily flight to Düsseldorf is in direct response to the increasing demand for our services and product throughout Germany. All of our routes in Germany are proving to be extremely successful and with the 2006 FIFA World Cup, of which Emirates is an Official Partner, taking place in June, we expect to see greatly increased demand for our services into the country and this second daily service should help us to meet that demand.

"We are delighted to offer our customers the convenience of an optional timing from Dubai to Düsseldorf, which will make it easier for them to meet their travel needs whether they are flying Emirates on business or pleasure."
