Emirates today unveiled plans to boost capacity to London with the addition of a tenth daily flight to the British capital starting 1st October 2016.
The new service, Emirates' fourth daily flight to London Gatwick, will complement its six daily services to Heathrow and take the airline's total weekly services to the city to 70.
The Dubai-London Gatwick service will be operated by a three-class Boeing 777-300ER aircraft with 8 Private Suites in First Class, 42 lie flat seats in Business Class and 310 seats in Economy Class.
EK 023 will depart Dubai at 0950hrs, arriving in London at 1430hrs. The return flight, EK 024, will leave London at 1650hrs, arriving in Dubai at 0240hrs the next day.
The early morning arrival will enable seamless connectivity to key destinations in the Middle East, West Asia and the Far East.
Customers on Emirates’ flights enjoy the famed hospitality of its multi-national Cabin Crew, including over 2000 British nationals, as well as gourmet cuisine and Emirates’ award-winning ice entertainment system.
Passengers travelling in premium cabins from Gatwick Airport will enjoy a brand new, exclusive drop-off zone for Emirates’ Chauffeur-drive service where porters will assist with their luggage.
