This additional service will be operated by Emirates’ 3-class Boeing B777-300ERs featuring First, Business and Economy Class. The Dubai-based carrier says that it is increasing services to 21 flights per week “to meet market demand and offer customers greater flexibility, choice, and connectivity”. With the third scheduled service, Emirates will now operate two daily direct flights to the city in addition to a third daily service via Bangkok, “allowing customers to have more choice of timings to suit their travel plans”.
The added flights to be deployed in November will complement Emirates’ direct services on EK380/381 as well as EK384/385, operating with a short stopover in Bangkok. Both services are operated by Emirates’ flagship Airbus A380 aircraft.
The airline’s boosted services to Hong Kong are expected to facilitate connectivity for passengers travelling between Hong Kong and other popular destinations in Emirates’ network including the United Kingdom, UAE, Turkey and a host of European destinations. Furthermore, key feeder markets for Hong Kong include the United Kingdom, UAE, Brazil, South Africa and European destinations including Germany, Italy, Portugal and more.
