Emirates Extends Eastern Europe Destinations

Emirates touched down in Warsaw overnight, marking the airline’s first scheduled service to Poland and 129th international destination.

Emirates’ daily flight to Warsaw, operated by an Airbus A330-200 aircraft, is the first international service to offer a first class product in Poland, as well as economy and business class.

All four Emirates daily flights from New Zealand provide direct connections at Dubai with the new service to Warsaw.

Emirates customers travelling from Warsaw will enjoy excellent flight connections across Emirates’ network, encouraging further trade and tourism opportunities for the country’s growing economy.

Continuing its expansion, Emirates last week announced the launch of services to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport on 3rd June 2013. The next new route to launch in the airline’s network will be Algiers on 1st March 2013.
