Emirates has announced that it will commence a fifth daily flight service between Dubai and Singapore from August 1, 2014. Increased frequency will lead to better flexibility for passengers looking for air tickets on Emirates’ network.
Dubai-based Emirates has announced its plans to launch fifth daily flight to Singapore from August 1, 2014.
The new service, as per the airline, will be operated via a 364-seat Boeing 777-300. Tickets for different cabin classes will be offered aboard the aircraft. 12 seats in first class, 42 in business class and 310 in economy class will be provided to passengers who seek air tickets.
The new flight EK352 will take off from Dubai daily at 2115, arriving in Singapore at 0900 the next morning. The return flight, EK353, will leave Singapore at 1035 and arrive back into Dubai at 1345.
The introduction of fifth daily service will bring Emirates’ weekly tally to 35 flights. While 28 flights are non-stop services, seven flights are routed via Colombo, offering flexibility to fliers seeking air tickets on the route. The carrier also operates daily flights from Singapore to Brisbane and Melbourne in Australia.
“The introduction of our fifth daily service between Dubai and Singapore is a reflection of the growing passenger demand for flights between these two important global business, trade and tourism hubs,” said Barry Brown, Emirates’ divisional senior vice president, Commercial Operations East.
The airline believes that the rise in the frequency is going to give greater flexibility to customers who book flight tickets with Emirates.
Emirates has been on a sort of an expansion spree. The airline has already launched flights to three new destinations this year including Kiev, Taipei and Boston. Moreover, the Dubai based carrier has made public its plans to commence flights to Abuja and Kano, Nigeria (August 1), Chicago, USA (August 1), Oslo, Norway (September 2) and Brussels, Belgium (September 5).
