Emirates announced that due to strong market demand, it will introduce five additional flights per week from Dubai to Amsterdam. These additional flights will complement its existing double daily services, offer an earlier departure option from Amsterdam that is convenient for visitors to Dubai, and provide enhanced connectivity to destinations on Emirates’ global network.
Four additional weekly services will be started effective 1 December 2018 and the fifth will be added from 1 January 2019, increasing frequency to the Dutch capital city to 19 weekly flights.
Outbound, flight EK145 will depart early morning from Dubai on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and arrives at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in time for breakfast, allowing customers to make the most of their day in the city*. The flight schedule is conveniently timed for passengers connecting from Emirates global route network to Amsterdam and will be popular for business travellers to the Netherlands from Johannesburg, Cape Town, Sydney and Bangalore as well as for Dutch leisure travellers returning to Amsterdam from Bangkok, Bali, Mauritius, Maldives and Sri Lanka.
The return service, EK146, will depart from Amsterdam on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday late morning time, and arrives in the evening in Dubai*. This service adds more convenience to those visiting Dubai, and offers enhanced connectivity to Phuket and Johannesburg.
The new service will be operated by an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER in a three class cabin configuration, with eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class and 310 spacious seats in Economy Class. This complements the two existing services between Dubai and Amsterdam, flights EK147/EK148 and EK149/EK150, operated by an Airbus A380.
From a cargo perspective, the new 777 service will offer up to 20 tonnes of capacity per flight, with popular exports from Amsterdam expected to be flowers, pharmaceuticals and general cargo items. During the year 2017, Emirates SkyCargo uplifted over 90,000 tonnes of exports and imports from Amsterdam.
Passengers flying with Emirates can stop over in Dubai for a few days on their way to one of over 160 destinations. Dubai offers everything a visitor could want, from shopping at some of the largest malls in the region to dining options which will spoil anyone for choice. Visitors can also enjoy beaches, family-friendly hotels, theme parks, and even ski slopes at the Mall of the Emirates.
