Emirates’ Triple Daily to Jordan Good News for NZ Travellers

Emirates will add a third daily flight to Jordan from August, providing direct connections in each direction at Dubai for Emirates’ four daily flights from New Zealand.

The move represents a further ramping up of services to Amman after Emirates’ flights to Jordan went double daily in October 2012.

The new outbound flight, EK 905, will depart Dubai at 9.55pm and arrive in Amman at11.59pm. The return flight, EK 906, will depart at 3.45am and touch down in Dubai at7.45am local time. A combination of Boeing 777 and Airbus A330-200 aircraft will be used, as with the existing operation.

Jordan is one of the most popular tourism destinations in the Middle East and amongst the airline’s earliest routes, launching in 1986. In 2011, Emirates marked 25 years of service to Amman.

Tourists come from far and wide to see Jordan’s world-renowned attractions such as Petra and the Dead Sea.

Flying with Emirates means having a selection of up to 1,700 channels of movies, TV programmes, games and music to enjoy during the flight. Cabin crew from around the world are on hand to look after customers, serving gourmet-chef prepared food along the way.

Emirates, winner of ‘World’s Best Airline’ in the 2013 Skytrax public-vote awards, is known for its generous luggage allowances. Travellers can check-in 30 kilograms in Economy Class, 40 kilograms in Business Class and 50 kilograms in First Class.

In Dubai, passengers can benefit from one of the world’s leading airport facilities, Terminal 3. The Emirates-dedicated terminal is light, spacious and stress-free and includes Concourse A, the world’s first purpose built A380 concourse. Inside, First and Business Class travellers can enjoy the world’s largest lounges.
