Emirates to debut City of Churches flights in November 2012

Emirates will debut its presence in the City of Churches beginning 1 November 2012 up to four times a week on its Boeing 777-300ER and it will increase it to daily beginning 1 Feburary 2013.

The flight will depart out of Adelaide at 10.45pm every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, reaching  Dubai International Airport at 5.25am the next day. It is a gamble especially Adelaide has a curfew of its airspace by 11:00pm every night.

The flight out of Dubai to Adelaide on EK440 will depart 1.55am for arrival into Adelaide at 8.45pm the very same day itself.

Emirates will also boost its current double-daily Perth service to a triple-daily from 1 March 2013.

The new EK422/423 service will start on 1 December with five extra flights per week before stepping into daily from March next year.

It’ll leave Perth at 3.30pm and reach Dubai at 10.25pm, with the return leg out of DXB at 9.45pm for arrival into Perth at 12.25pm the next day.

That comes on top of the introduction of a daily A380 services from Melbourne, says Emirates Airline CEO Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum.

“The addition of Adelaide to our network and the boost to our Perth operations demonstrates our commitment to investment and growth in our Australian operations and highlights the economic strength and global demand for the two cities as business, leisure and investment destinations.”
