Emirates’ resumption of operations in Australia continues with the introduction of a brand new each day flight to Brisbane.
Emirates will start working the second each day flight to and from Brisbane utilizing a Boeing 777-300ER on 1 June 2023. Emirates flight EK 430 departs Dubai at 0230hrs and arrives in Brisbane at 2220hrs. EK 431, the return flight, departs Brisbane at 0250hrs and arrives in Dubai at 1100hrs native time. The airline now operates a each day A380 flight to Brisbane.
With the extra flight, Emirates will resume pre-pandemic service to Brisbane. The mission will improve capability via Brisbane by greater than a quarter-million seats per yr in each instructions.
Barry Brown, Divisional Vice President Australasia at Emirates, stated: “Our second daily service to Brisbane begins as we proudly celebrate 20 years of flying to the sunshine state. This service will cater to the demand of Australians looking to travel overseas and welcome more travellers and tourists from Dubai and across our global network to enjoy Queensland, Australia’s tourism mecca”.
“The additional service combined with our daily A380 to Brisbane means Emirates will offer almost 12,000 seats to and from Brisbane every week. This is another important milestone in the resumption of our Australian capacity and reaffirms our longstanding commitment to flying down under. We look forward to welcoming more Australians on board to enjoy the Emirates experience.”
“This is a huge vote of confidence in the Brisbane and Queensland markets. It virtually doubles Emirates’ capacity between the two cities overnight, providing additional seats for important Middle Eastern and European markets. “This is a huge brick in the wall in terms of reconstructing what was lost by covid,” says Gert-Jan de Graaff, CEO of Brisbane Airport Corporation.
“In October, we will mark the 20th anniversary of Emirates’ arrival in Brisbane. The airline remained a lifeline for repatriating Australians throughout the pandemic and allowing vital Queensland exports to continue.”
These new flights may even assist to carry down airfares, which have been raised owing to extreme demand and inadequate availability.”
The extension was funded by the Attracting Aviation Investment Fund, a $200 million mixed State Government and trade fund established to enhance Queensland’s tourism sector.
“The increased service is anticipated to produce an additional 730 direct and indirect jobs for the state,” stated Queensland Acting Premier Steven Miles. Emirates’ massive international community of over 130 locations will present a powerful reference to the UK, Europe, Scandinavia, Africa, and North America.”
Emirates will function 49 weekly flights to Australia, starting in Brisbane on 1 June 2023, boosting the rebirth of tourism and growing commerce and industrial prospects by giving travellers even larger entry to and from Australia.
