A daily service between Edinburgh and Dubai from 1 October is on the way from Emirates, the airline’s second destination in Scotland after Glasgow, which is served twice daily, and eighth in the UK after daily flights to Stansted start next month.
The new service will be operated by a Boeing B777-300ER in a three-class configuration, with eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class and 304 seats in Economy.
Emirates’ divisional senior vice-president Hubert Frach said: “We’re increasing capacity to Scotland to meet growing demand, with the new service offering passengers from across our global network, particularly key inbound markets such as Asia and Australia, a direct option to the city via our Dubai hub.
“It will also be a more convenient point for travellers from the greater Edinburgh area and beyond, including Aberdeen and Dundee, to travel with Emirates to Dubai and onward to destinations across our network.”
Edinburgh Airport chief executive Gordon Dewar added: “This is a fantastic announcement for us as we welcome another world-renowned airline to Scotland's busiest airport.
“It will enhance our connectivity with the Middle East and further afield and we're delighted to welcome Emirates on board and expand further our international choice for the 13.4m passengers who use Edinburgh Airport every year.”
