Emirates expands in Southern Australia
Emirates has further bolstered its commitment to South Australia with the introduction of three extra flights a week, ensuring a non-stop daily service between Dubai and Adelaide.
The increased volume of flights to Adelaide comes just three months after Emirates commenced its four time a week service to its fifth Australian gateway in November 2012. It will see an additional 1,062 seats operate in and out of the state per week, carrying an expected 200,000 passengers on the route each year.
“The response since our inception into Southern Australia has been overwhelming, with current load factors averaging between 85% and 90% throughout December and January,” Emirates’ Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations Far East & Australasia Salem Obaidalla said.
Emirates operates its 354-seat Boeing 777-300ER on the 13 hour flight between Adelaide and Dubai, offering eight First Class Private Suites, 42 Business Class lie-flat seats and 304 spacious seats in Economy Class.
Passengers flying with Emirates throughout its global route network benefit from a range of services, including ice, Emirates’ award-winning inflight entertainment system with up to 1,400 channels of entertainment across all cabin classes and gourmet chef-prepared dining options.
