Emirates is to launch a daily route from Stansted (STN) to Dubai (DXB) on 8 June. It becomes the first airline to offer long-haul services from all three major London airports.
The flight will be operated by the airline’s new three-class Boeing 777-300ER offering customers six seats in First, 42 in Business and 306 in Economy Class. The aircraft is fitted with its game changing, fully enclosed private suites in First Class, as well as refreshed Business and Economy Class cabins.
Opening the Stansted gateway was clearly a strategic decision by Emirates to serve the thriving business community in London’s north east and the wider 7.5m population that fall within its catchment area. Hong Kong, Dubai, Shanghai, Singapore and Mumbai are the most popular business destinations from the East of England, which Emirates serves daily through its Dubai hub. Leisure travellers can enjoy direct, daily services to Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Bali and the Indian Ocean islands.
More than 25 of the world’s largest corporations have established operations in the wider Cambridge and Peterborough area, with Airbus, Astra Zeneca and GSK amongst the multi-national companies based there. Such businesses have helped establish the Stansted – Cambridge Corridor as one of the top global hi-tech regions.
