Emirates: Emirates has announced it will ramp up its global operations with the restart of services to four destinations, including: Bali, from May 1; London Stansted, from August 1; Rio de Janeiro, from November 2; and Buenos Aires, from November 2.

The airline has also announced it will boost services to Nigeria, Mauritius and Singapore to serve market demand.

In line with the easing of travel restrictions worldwide, Emirates continues to rebuild and expand its global network to meet travel demand.

Fly to Bali, London Stansted, Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires

Starting from May 1, 2022 Emirates will operate five weekly flights to Bali, utilising a two-class Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

The airline will also scale up its operations from July 1, 2022 to serve the island destination with a daily service.

Starting from August 1, 2022 Emirates will resume flight operations to London Stansted with five weekly flights, utilising Emirates’ Boeing 777-300ER aircraft fitted with the ‘Game Changer' First Class product.

From September 1, the airline will increase its services to offer a daily flight. By October 2022, the airline will be serving the UK with 110 weekly flights, including: six times daily to London Heathrow; double daily A380 service to Gatwick; three times daily to Manchester, including a double daily A380 service (starting October 1, 2022); double daily service to Birmingham; five weekly flights to Newcastle (with the fifth weekly flight starting from July 1, 2022); and a daily service to Glasgow.

Emirates will operate four weekly flights to Buenos Aires via Rio de Janeiro, on its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft from November 2, 2022 - offering customers from Argentina and Brazil direct connectivity to popular business and leisure destinations across the Middle East, Africa and Asia. From February 1, 2023, Emirates will scale up its operations to a daily service, offering customers greater convenience, choice and flexibility while planning their travel.

Boosting operations to Nigeria, Mauritius and Singapore

The Dubai-based airline is increasing its services to Lagos with 11 weekly flights, starting from 1 July, 2022. The airline will ramp up its operations to the Nigerian city to offer a double daily service starting from September 1, 2022 - taking the airline’s services to pre-pandemic levels.

Emirates will also increase its services to Nigeria’s capital city, Abuja, to offer 5 weekly flights starting May 1, 2022 and then a daily service from September 1, 2022.

In line with rising demand, the airline will be scaling up flights to Mauritius from daily to nine weekly flights between April 9, 2022 and the end of June 2022, and then moving up to double daily flights from July 2022.

Emirates’ second daily flight will provide an important boost to tourism to the Indian Ocean destination which has now relaxed entry restrictions for travellers.

Under the codeshare agreement with Air Mauritius, customers of both airlines can enjoy greater access and seamless connectivity to and from the island-nation.

The airline will also increase passenger services to Singapore from seven weekly flights, to 14 weekly flights, starting from June 23, 2022. The added service will meet the increased demand for travel, since the country safely reopened to international tourists and eased travel restrictions.

With the resumption of services to four more destinations, Emirates’ extensive network will span to more than 130 destinations, across six continents.

The airline continues to place top priority on safe travel with the implementation of comprehensive set of measures on the ground throughout all touchpoints and on board to provide its passengers with the highest safety and hygiene standards at every step of the journey.
