Emirates Increases Frequency and Enhances Services to Australia
With Australia’s borders set to re-open to international travellers from November, Emirates is enhancing its operations to the country to meet pent up demand for travel into and out of Australia.
From 2 November Emirates will increase the frequency of flights EK414/415 between Dubai and Sydney to daily operated by a Boeing 777-300ER. Flights to Melbourne will operate four times a week as EK408/409, with the potential to increase in line with demand.
Capacity on flights to Sydney and Melbourne will return to 100%, allowing 354 passengers across all cabins to travel on its flights.
Australian citizens, permanent residents and their immediate family members will be able to enjoy unrestricted travel once again to and from the two points for the first time since the pandemic began, whether travelling abroad to global destinations for leisure or finally travelling home to visit family or friends, as long as they are vaccinated against COVID-19 with a TGA-approved vaccine.
From 1 December, Emirates’ flagship A380 aircraft, will also return to the Australian skies once again, serving the Dubai-Sydney route, on a daily basis. The aircraft will offer 516 seats in a three-class configuration, with 426 seats in Economy Class, in addition to its premium cabins, with 76 and 14 seats in Business Class and First Class, respectively.
Tickets can be booked by visiting www.emirates.com or through preferred travel agents. For more details on entry requirements to Australia, pre-departure COVID-19 testing requirements and mandatory documentation, customers can check the travel requirements page on emirates.com.
Customers are urged to check the applicable eligibility requirements prior to booking as they are subject to change by the Australian federal and state governments.
