DUBAI: Emirates plans to link the Scottish city of Edinburgh with Dubai, UAE from early October.
The new flight will become the third daily service between Scotland and Dubai as Emirates already links the UAE and Scotland twice a day.
Hubert Frach, divisional senior vice president, Emirates, elaborated, “We are increasing our capacity to Scotland to meet growing demand.”
He added the new service would offer customers from across Emirates’ global network, particularly from key inbound markets such as Asia and Australia, a direct option to Edinburgh via the airline’s Dubai hub.
The route will be operated by a Boeing B777-300ER in a three-class cabin configuration, with eight private suites in first class, 42 lie-flat seats in business class and 304 seats in economy class.
