Emirates to restart flights from Stansted to Dubai


Emirates is to reintroduce flights from London Stansted airport to Dubai from 1 August after a gap of more than two years caused by the pandemic.

The Dubai-based carrier will offer five weekly flights from Stansted in August before increasing frequency to a daily service from 1 September. Emirates already serves two other London airports, Heathrow and Gatwick.

Emirates will fly Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on the Stansted-Dubai route, which is fitted with the airline’s Game Changer first class cabin.

The reintroduction of Stansted means that Emirates will offer 110 weekly flights from seven UK airports to Dubai by October 2022.

The airline is also doubling flights from Dubai to Singapore from seven to 14 per week from 23 June, after the destination eased its travel rules.

Emirates is also stepping up flights from Dubai to Lagos and Abuja in Nigeria in the coming months, as well as operating four weekly flights to Buenos Aires via Rio de Janeiro from 2 November 2022.
