The service will provide South Australia with a link to more than 140 destinations in the airline’s network
Emirates airline has taken the final step in the restoration of its Australia capacity announcing its return to Adelaide.
A daily service will relaunch between the South Australia capital and the airline’s Dubai hub from 28 October 2024.
Emirates first launched its Adelaide services in 2012. By 1 December 2024, when Emirates also reinstates its second daily service to Perth, the airline will offer 77 weekly flights from Australia with the ability to transport 68,000 passengers per week to and from Australia, returning to its pre-pandemic capacity.
The tourism expenditure of daily direct non-stop Emirates’ flights is estimated by the South Australian Tourism Commission to generate more than US$62 million per year and create in excess of 315 full-time tourism-related jobs for South Australians.
Emirates’ EK440 will depart from Dubai at 02:00 and arrive in Adelaide at 20:50. Emirates’ return flight EK441 will depart from Adelaide at 22:35 and arrive in Dubai at 05:15.
Operating daily on the Boeing 777-200LR aircraft with 38 Business Class seats alongside 264 seats in Economy Class, the Adelaide service will offer 302 seats per flight and over 4,200 weekly seats between Dubai and Adelaide. Emirates Business Class on the Adelaide service will feature a 2-2-2 configuration.
The relaunch of the Emirates Dubai-Adelaide service provides a vital link to South Australia’s traditionally strong European markets, as well as the United Kingdom, Middle East, India, and the east coast of the United States.
