Emirates is set to launch a new daily route from Stansted to Dubai on June 8, making it the first Middle Eastern airline to operate out of the popular North East London airport.

The daily route will be operated by the airline’s new three-class Boeing 777-300ER offering customers six seats in First Class, 42 in Business Class and 306 in Economy Class.

The aircraft is fitted with its fully enclosed private suites in First Class, as well as refreshed Business and Economy Class cabins. Outbound, flight EK33 will depart Dubai at 09:30 and arrive into Stansted at 14:10. On its return, flight EK34 will depart Stansted at 21:10 and arrive in Dubai at 07:05 the following day.

Opening the London Stansted gateway has been reported as a strategic decision from the airline to serve the business community in London’s north east and the wider 7.5 million population that fall within its catchment area. Hong Kong, Dubai, Shanghai, Singapore and Mumbai are reported to be the most popular business destinations from the East of England, which the airline serves daily through its Dubai hub.

Leisure travellers can also enjoy direct, daily services to Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Bali and the Indian Ocean islands.
