Emirates Connects Dubai and Bangkok Six Times a Day
Bangkok–11 Jul–Spark Communications
Emirates, one of the world’s fastest growing airlines, announced recently a further increase in capacity between Dubai and Bangkok, with a start of a sixth daily, non-stop service from 27 October 2013.
Emirates’ additional service will operate as EK370 departing Dubai at 1520hrs and arriving in Bangkok at 0020hrs the following day. The return EK371 will depart Bangkok at 0155hrs and arrive in Dubai at 0545hrs.
“Emirates’ sixth daily service to Bangkok launches on the same day as the start of our second daily Airbus A380 service to the city, demonstrating the importance of Thailand to the airline,” said Barry Brown, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations East.
“Due to passenger demand, we have seen a steady increase in terms of services and capacity on our South East Asian routes. In addition to the Bangkok sixth daily, Emirates is also increasing its Hong Kong services to four daily from 27 October and will be launching a daily, non-stop service to Clark in the Philippines from 1 October,” added Mr Brown.
“Emirates’ newest service will connect passengers from Thailand perfectly with our morning departures from Dubai onto a vast network of European and American destinations, or for an ideal start of a working day in Dubai. The launch of yet another daily flight as well as the second daily A380 between Bangkok and Dubai means we are able to offer even greater travel options and comfort for our ex-Bangkok passengers,” said Jabr Al-Azeeby, Emirates’ Manager for Thailand & Indochina.
A Boeing 777-200ER will operate the new Dubai – Bangkok route with 12 seats in First Class, 42 seats in Business Class and 220 seats in Economy Class. Passengers in all cabins can enjoy ice – Emirates’ award-winning inflight entertainment, including movies and TV shows in Thai, Filipino and Cantonese, as well as gourmet food served by Emirates’ multicultural cabin crew.
