Emirates Starts Services to Stockholm

Emirates has further expanded its European reach with the start of its daily non-stop service from Dubai to Stockholm, offering a direct connection with all four of its daily New Zealand services.

“Stockholm is an important centre for business, industry and services in Scandinavia, with an average annual GDP growth of 3.5 per cent forecast for the coming years,” said Hubert Frach, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President Commercial Operations, West.

“Emirates’ new service will play a significant role in supporting this growth by connecting Stockholm to well-established and emerging markets in the Far East, opening new conduits for trade, investment and tourism,” Mr Frach added.

The Boeing 777-200LR aircraft operating on the route is well-appointed with eight luxurious private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class, and ample space for 216 customers in Economy Class. Locally sourced, fresh gourmet cuisine in all cabins is served by Emirates’ multinational cabin crew. The airline currently employs more than 140 Swedish nationals, including 50 cabin crew members and 64 flight deck crew.

Emirates' award-winning inflight entertainment system ice offers up to 1,500 channels showing the latest blockbuster films, TV programmes, and an extensive repertoire of music from around the world.

Customers on Emirates flights also enjoy extra baggage allowance – 30 kilogrammes for those travelling in Economy Class, 40 kilogrammes for Business Class and 50 kilogrammes for First Class.

Emirates now operates services to 135 destinations in 77 countries from Dubai. Earlier this year, Emirates launched services to Warsaw, Algiers and Haneda. On 1st October, Emirates will launch services to Clark International Airport in the Philippines and on the same day will commence its transatlantic Milan-New York route. Emirates will launch a linked service to Conakry in Guinea from 27th October, Sialkot in Pakistan on 5th November, and will expand its presence in Eastern Europe with the launch of Kiev on 16th January 2014, followed by Taipei on 10th February 2014.
