Emirates continues its network expansion with the announcement of the start of daily services to Phuket in Thailand.  This popular holiday destination is the country's largest island.

Operated by a three-class Airbus aircraft, EK378 will depart Dubai at 12:45 and arrive at Phuket International Airport at 21:55. The return flight (EK379) will depart at 00:35 the following day and arrive at Dubai International Airport at 04:35. (all times local).

“Emirates is looking forward to the launch of our non-stop, daily service to Phuket, which will be just in time for the holiday season.  We have always had a strong affiliation with Thailand and have been operating flights to Bangkok since 1990”, said Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline.

“Thailand is an important market for Emirates, we currently operate four daily flights between Dubai and Bangkok, including one with our Airbus A380 aircraft.  We are confident that Phuket will prove a popular destination for our passengers, especially those from the UAE, Middle East and Europe”, added Mr Clark.

Phuket will become the 15th route launch for the airline this year and the second in South East Asia following on from Ho Chi Minh City in June. www.emirates.com
