Emirates Brings Forward its Fourth Daily Service to Dhaka
Emirates is now set to launch its fourth daily service to Dhaka from 29 March 2020 instead of 1 June 2020, as announced earlier.
The fourth daily will boost Emirates’ weekly services to Dhaka from 21 to 28, and will connect customers seamlessly across the airline’s global route network spanning six continents.
The new service will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER in a two-class configuration with a total of 352 seats including 42 Business Class and 310 Economy Class seats.
Flight EK588 will depart Dubai at 10:30pm and arrive in Dhaka at 5:20am next day. The return flight EK589 will depart Dhaka at 8am and arrive in Dubai at 11am.
The service has been timed to create convenient connections to popular cities, including London, Rome, Frankfurt, Porto, New York, Washington, D.C., Mexico City, Johannesburg and Cape Town.
Emirates has gradually grown its services to Dhaka over the years – from two weekly services in 1986 to three daily services in 2013. During the last 33 years, the airline has flown over 9.9 million passengers between Dubai and Dhaka.
