Emirates has commenced a new daily service between Dubai and Auckland via Bali, reflecting increased interest in the Indonesian island and improving connectivity to New Zealand.
The airline is operating a 777-300ER on the route, offering 8 seats in First, 42 seats in Business and 304 seats in Economy class, as well as 20 tonnes of belly-hold cargo capacity.
The new service will also be the first Emirates Bali flight to offer passengers the airline’s award-winning First Class product.
The new service offers travellers a total of three daily services to New Zealand, complementing Emirates’ existing non-stop daily A380 service between Dubai and Auckland and its current daily A380 service between Dubai and Christchurch via Sydney.
Travellers will now also enjoy a choice of 3 daily services between Dubai and Bali in summer as the new flight adds to Emirates’ two existing daily services operated by a Boeing 777-300ER.
The new Dubai-Bali-Auckland flight provides the only year-round non-stop daily service between Auckland and Bali, giving passengers an opportunity to visit and/or stop over in one of the most popular islands in Indonesia.
Auckland is a vibrant, cosmopolitan community of more than 1.6 million people – New Zealand’s biggest city, containing a third of the country’s population.
Located on an isthmus between two harbours, the city has a wide range of attractive beaches, including popular surfing spots.
