Emirates launches Daylight Flights between Singapore and Dubai

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Friday, 30 January 2009

Passengers traveling from Singapore to Dubai on Emirates will soon have the option to take a day flight, instead of a midnight flight.

From 2 February 2009, the new daylight flight, EK433, departs Singapore at 0940 hours and arrives in Dubai at 1300 hours.

Previously operated as a midnight flight departing Singapore at 0250 hours, the daily flight spells good news for business and leisure travelers who prefer to start off their journey in the morning, after a good night’s rest at home, and arrive in Dubai in time for their afternoon meetings or to begin their exploration of the city.

Europe-bound transit passengers on EK433 can also move on swiftly to catch Emirates’ second wave of connecting flights to Europe in the afternoon.

This new schedule complements Emirates’ existing 14 weekly flights to Dubai, which departs Singapore between 0010 hours and 0220 hours, and arrives in Dubai between 0420 hours and 0545 hours.

Mr Stephen Chu, Emirates’ Country Manager for Singapore and Brunei, said, “We do have many passengers who like midnight flights, as they can catch some rest onboard our aircraft and arrive in Dubai with a full day ahead of them for business or leisure. However, there are also passengers who prefer getting a full night’s sleep at home first before embarking on a morning flight and arriving at their destination in the afternoon. We are pleased to be able to offer both services to our passengers and we believe that our daylight flights will be warmly received by Singapore travelers.”

The daylight flight is operated on Emirates’ state-of-the-art Boeing 777-300ER. The aircraft includes 12 forward-facing flat-bed massage seats in First Class “Private Suites”, separated by wide isles in a 2-2-2 configuration. Business Class travellers can enjoy the lie-flat massage seats with a 72″ pitch that reclines to form a 78″ lie-flat bed and provides ample room for taller passengers. The aircraft features an Integrated Passenger Seat Controller (touch screen) for controlling massager, privacy partition, backrest recline, seat pan extension, footrest extension, leg rest extension and lumbar support.
