Emirates Expands in Scotland with New Service to Edinburgh

Emirates is set to expand its operations in Scotland with launch a daily service between Dubai International Airport and Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland from 1 October 2018.

Edinburgh will become Emirates’ second destination in Scotland after Glasgow and its 8th in the United Kingdom after the airline starts its daily service to London Stansted in June.

The new service will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER in a three class configuration, with 8 private suites in First Class, 42 lie flat seats in Business Class and 304 seats in Economy Class.

Flight EK023 will depart Dubai at 0955hrs and arrive in Edinburgh at 1450hrs. Flight EK024 will depart Edinburgh at 2015hrs and arrive in Dubai at 0640hrs the next morning.

Customers travelling from Edinburgh, as well as Glasgow, can also access over 90 destinations under the Emirates and flydubai network including Kathmandu, Zanzibar and Kilimanjaro.

Edinburgh, with its Old Town and New Town both being UNESCO World Heritage Sites, is the second most visited city in the UK by tourists. It is famed for its rich history, cultural and architectural attractions, gourmet food scene, as well as international festivals and cultural events.

Edinburgh was the first city in the world to be designated a UNESCO City of Literature. Last year it was named by the European Union as the top city of its size in Europe for culture and creativity.
