Emirates Adds Phuket to Growing Network

Emirates, one of the world’s fastest growing airlines, continues its network expansion with the announcement of the start of daily services from Dubai to Phuket in Thailand.

Phuket will, from December 10, become Emirates’ second destination in Thailand.

“Emirates is looking forward to the launch of our non-stop, daily service to Phuket, which will be just in time for the holiday season. We have always had a strong affiliation with Thailand and have been operating flights to Bangkok since 1990,” said Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline.

“Thailand is an important market for Emirates, we currently operate four daily flights between Dubai and Bangkok, including one with our Airbus A380 aircraft. We are confident that Phuket will prove a popular destination for our passengers, especially those from the UAE, Middle East and Europe,” added Mr Clark.

Emirates also operates a daily service to Bangkok from Christchurch via Sydney

Phuket will become the 15th route launch for the airline this year and the second in South East Asia following on from Ho Chi Minh City in June.

With a fleet of 178 aircraft and already the largest A380 operator in the world, with 22 in service, Emirates currently flies to 125 destinations in 74 countries.
