European expansion for Emirates

Emirates is expanding its operations into Europe with the August introduction of a daily non-stop service from Dubai to Oslo, on 5 September Brussels, and 27 October Budapest.

All the flights are by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

Thierry Antinori, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, spoke at the Brussels introduction reception: “We’ve had lots of customers asking us to fly to Brussels over the years so this really is fantastic news for them.  Belgium’s tourism is thriving and we believe that we can drive demand even higher by providing great competition with our multi-award winning product and service.

“Emirates is the only airline offering First Class seats from Brussels to destinations in the Far and Middle East, providing an unrivalled premium experience for our passengers.  As headquarters for a huge number of major global corporations we are already seeing strong bookings from markets like China, the UAE, Japan and India, one of Belgium’s largest trade partners.”

Brussels is the airline’s 145th worldwide route.  www.emirates.com
