Emirates has announced the launch of a second daily flight from Dubai (DXB) to London Stansted (STN) starting 1st July, 2019. The additional flight means that Emirates customers will now have 11 daily flight options to and from three London airports.
As with the first, the second daily flight to Stansted will also be operated by Emirates’ ‘game changing’ Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration with 6 private suites in First Class, 42 fully-flat beds in Business Class and 306 seats in Economy Class.
The aircraft offers customers an enriched travel experience across all cabins with newly designed seats and upgraded inflight entertainment systems.
Customers will also enjoy new levels of comfort with fully enclosed private suites in First Class as well as refreshed Business and Economy Class cabins.
Said Hubert Frach, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations West: “We are increasing capacity to London Stansted to meet steady demand from both leisure and business travellers to and from the region, as well as international student traffic to Cambridge.
“We continuously seek ways to maximise convenience and flexibility for our customers and the second daily flight combined with the optimal travel schedules will do exactly that; provide a seamless travel experience with Emirates.”
The second daily flight to Stansted also means increased tourism to the region, enabling further trade and economic growth. Popular inbound markets include Australia, UAE, India, South Africa, China, Malaysia and Hong Kong.
Emirates’ partnership with flydubai unlocks even more destination options for outbound travel, with seamless connections to Zanzibar, Kathmandu, Faisalabad and Asmara, to name a few.
Travelling to Dubai for a weekend getaway or short work trip will also be more convenient with a morning or evening arrival option in Dubai and afternoon or evening arrival in Stansted.
All Emirates First Class and Business Class customers travelling to and from Stansted enjoy complimentary chauffeur drive service within a 50 mile radius.
Emirates second daily flight to London Stansted brings Emirates’ total weekly flights to the UK to 140 – six services a day from Heathrow, three daily from London Gatwick and Manchester, two daily from Birmingham, Glasgow and London Stansted, and a daily service from Newcastle and Edinburgh.
