Emirates boosts Dubai flights

Emirates has resumed its pre-pandemic flying schedule from London Stansted, adding a second daily flight from the airport to Dubai.

The world’s largest international airline will now operate 14 weekly flights to Dubai giving passengers more opportunity to connect onto its 144-destination global network from its Middle East hub.

Flights will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER, with first, business, and economy class seating available, arriving at Stansted at 18.45, and departing at 21:10.

Gareth Powell, London Stansted’s Managing Director, said:

“The return of Emirates’ second daily flight from London Stansted to Dubai is great news for passengers and a real boost for the airport, London and the East of England.

“This doubling of flights is a clear demonstration of the airline's confidence in Stansted and reflects the significant demand for long-haul services that exits across the region.

“With 14 flights to Dubai a week now available, passengers from the region will have access to the airline’s global network, connecting them to popular long-haul destinations such as Singapore, Thailand, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Australia, and the Maldives through its Middle East hub.

“We really look forward to continuing to build our successful partnership with Emirates for what promises to be a busy summer at London Stansted.”

Emirates began serving the airport in June 2018, initially with daily flights, and then twice daily from March 2019.

The route was suspended during the coronavirus pandemic and was reinstated in August 2022.

Richard Jewsbury, Divisional Vice President, Emirates UK, said: 

“Since we recommenced services to and from Stansted in August 2022, bookings have continued to surge from the London hub.

“It is fantastic to be scaling up operations even further this year, offering passengers increased connectivity ahead of the popular summer holiday period.

“Stansted is a key hub for Emirates in the East and Southeast of the UK, and we look forward to welcoming even more passengers onboard.”
