Customers can now choose from 11 daily flights from Dubai to London
Emirates has reintroduced its double daily service to London Stansted (STN), following increased demand for international travel.
The airline now serves London with eleven daily flights, including six daily flights to Heathrow, three daily flights to Gatwick, and two to Stansted.
The additional service will make it easier for passengers to connect to popular long-haul destinations from Stansted including the UAE, Thailand, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Australia, and the Maldives, offering more travel choices and enhanced global connectivity.
Customers will also have more flexibility with departure times, with Stansted now offering both daytime and evening flights thanks to the reintroduction of the EK067 and EK068 flights. EK067 leaves Dubai at 14:15, arriving at London Stansted at 18:45. The return flight, EK068, departs Stansted at 21:10 and arrives at Dubai International (DXB) at 07:10 the next morning.
The flight is operated by a wide-body Emirates Boeing 777 aircraft, and offers a three-class configuration with seats in First, Business, and Economy class.
Emirates divisional UK vice president Richard Jewsbury commented: “Since the return of our operations to Stansted in August 2022, we have witnessed growing passenger appetite for international leisure tourism and corporate travel, and anticipate this will only increase throughout summer and beyond. Scaling up and offering an additional flight to our third London gateway will offer our Southeast-based customers greater choice.”
London Stansted managing director Gareth Powell said: “The return of Emirates’ second daily flight from London Stansted to Dubai is great news for passengers and a real boost for the airport, London and the East of England. This doubling of flights is a clear demonstration of the airline's confidence in Stansted and reflects the significant demand for long-haul services that exists across the region.”
Emirates will be serving the UK with 126 weekly flights, including: six daily flights to London Heathrow; double daily service to London Stansted; three times daily service to Gatwick; three times daily to Manchester; double daily service to Birmingham; daily service to Newcastle; and a daily service to Glasgow.
Emirates also has plans to enhance its operations to and from Birmingham, with the return of the iconic A380 aircraft starting from 1 July.
