Emirates has just announced the launch of a second daily flight from Dubai to London Stansted Airport starting on 1st July 2019. The new flights will address the rising demand for long-haul services from London Stansted Airport and will provide passengers with 150 onward connections available from Dubai’s hub.
London Stansted Airport sits at the heart of one of the UK’s fastest growing and most successful economic regions, reflecting the competitiveness and ambition of the businesses trading at the airport. London Stansted Airport is a critical economic asset for Essex and its increasing route network is a major attraction to international companies looking to invest and establish a presence in the region.
“The announcement that Emirates is to double the capacity on its Dubai service is fantastic news for passengers and is a vote of confidence in both London Stansted Airport and the East of England. Since day one this route has been extremely popular with passengers flying direct to Dubai but also taking advantage of the 150 onward connections available from the hub and today’s announcement is further evidence of the rising demand that exists for more long-haul services from Stansted.”
