Emirates increases capacity on international flights

Article By: news

Emirates recently launched its third daily flight from Dubai to Perth, demonstrating the demand for international flights to and from Western Australia.

This ongoing commitment to tourism and trade in Western Australia sees Emirates’ flights to Perth rise from 19 to 21 per week, offering an extra 1,440 seat capacity between Dubai and Emirates’ global network and Western Australia each week.

"Emirates is dedicated to providing greater travel opportunities for our passengers to and from Western Australia through the introduction of this new, third daily flight and by providing state-of-the-art aircraft across the three daily Perth services,” said Emirates’ Senior Vice President for Commercial Operations in Far East & Australasia Salem Obaidalla.

Emirates has announced that it will increase the capacity on one of its other flights to Perth - EK424 and EK425 from June 1, by using a Boeing 777-300ER. Tourism Western Australia CEO Stephanie Buckland said the introduction of Emirates’ third daily Perth service was a tremendous boost for the state’s tourism industry.

Emirates flies daily from Dubai to Malta via Larnaka, Cyprus using a Boeing 777-200 aircraft.
