Emirates has announced that it is to launch a new daily route from London Stansted (STN) to Dubai (DXB) on June 8, 2018. The carrier will be the first Middle Eastern airline to operate out of the North East London airport.
The daily route will be operated by the Emirate’s new three-class Boeing 777-300ER offering customers six seats in First Class, 42 in Business Class and 306 in Economy Class.
Outbound, flight EK33 will depart Dubai at 09:30 and will arrive at 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.
Ken O’Toole, London Stansted’s Chief Executive commented: “We’re delighted that Emirates has recognised the strength of London Stansted’s catchment and the opportunity that our available runway capacity gives them to continue growing in the South East of England over the next decade.
“At this crucial time, the new Emirates services will provide an important boost to the UK economy by strengthening international connectivity and offering greater choice and convenience for passengers travelling to long haul destinations. London Stansted has seen significant capital investment and growth since its acquisition by MAG in 2013 and we’re looking forward to working with Emirates as we move forward with the next phase of development of the airport and its network of destinations.”
Stansted will be the seventh UK airport served by Emirates, following Heathrow, Gatwick, Birmingham, Newcastle, Manchester and Glasgow.
