Emirates launches new Stansted-Dubai service
Daily flights from Stansted to Dubai will start on June 8
Emirates is to launch a new daily route from Stansted to Dubai on June 8 next year.
It will be the first Middle Eastern airline to operate out of the popular airport and said it is a strategic decision to serve the thriving business community in the catchment area.
Laurie Berryman, Emirates vice president UK, said:"The introduction of the new route is welcome news to businesses who, before now, travelled to central London to fly to airports with global reach.
"The additional gateway will prove useful to the new start-ups and existing SMEs, which form a growing section of the Cambridge business community. We pride ourselves in connecting people and economies and the addition of the Stansted gateway is the latest on our growing network."
Ken O'Toole, Stansted's chief executive said:"We're delighted that Emirates has recognised the strength of London Stansted's catchment and the opportunity that our available runway capacity gives them to continue growing in the South East of England over the next decade."
The daily route will be operated by the airline's new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
