We’re very pleased to be reinstating our daily service to Oslo, and to offering customers even more travel choices and flexibility while planning their holidays this winter season. We continue to see strong demand for travel from both leisure and business travellers alike to Dubai and beyond. We’re also seeing greater demand from the freight market.said Terje Grue, Country Manager for Norway, Emirates.

The added flights to Oslo will also offer travellers travelling into the Norwegian city greater connectivity. Norway remains a popular winter destination with tourists flocking in from all over the world, including key feeder markets: UAE, Australia, Indonesia, Japan and Korea.
The demand is even greater for some routes across our network than before the pandemic, and Norwegians are very keen to travel and see the world again. We’ve been working hard to return to our pre-pandemic flight schedule as quickly as possible, and it is good to be at that point again.added Terje Grue.
Emirates continues to enjoy monopoly on its flights between Dubai and Oslo, with no other airline operating on the route. The restoration of pre-pandemic frequency on this route signals that the demand for international tourism in Norway is back.
Elsewhere in Scandinavia, the Dubai-based carrier continues to operate a daily flight to Stockholm and Copenhagen from its Dubai hub with its Boeing B777-300ER aircraft.
Meanwhile, Emirates recently activated its codeshare partnership with Air Canada, revealing more details about the new partnership.
