EMIRATES has revealed further network changes for 2019 due to the closure of Dubai International Airport’s southern runway in Apr and May (TD 12 Jul 2018).
Emirates will suspend flights EK 418/419 between Bangkok and Syd from 01 Jun, and return to serving Syd with three flights a day non-stop to Dubai.
From 31 Mar, Emirates will serve Perth with a once daily Airbus A380 service non-stop from Dubai.
The runway closure will result in up to 48 Emirates aircraft not being utilised, with a 25% reduction in the overall number of flights operated by the airline during the 45-day period.
Emirates will deploy additional flights to several markets in Africa starting in Jun and multiple destinations across Europe will be served by extra flights during peak travel season leading up to and lasting through the northern summer of 2019.
