Emirates is strengthening its operations in
Northern Europe by adding more flights to Austria and Germany on
the back of new route announcements into Switzerland and Denmark.
Four extra flights will be added to the
airline's daily service to Vienna from 27 March 2011. The
additional Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday flights will be
served by an Airbus A340-500, offering 12 First Class Private
Suites, 42 seats in Business Class and 204 seats in Economy.
From 1 September 2011, Emirates' daily flight to
Hamburg becomes double daily. The extra frequencies are supported
by a Boeing 777-200, also in a three-class configuration.
“By providing these extra flights, we are
responding to strong demand for additional capacity on the Vienna
and Hamburg routes. The strengthened services will foster new
business and tourism to two of our key European destinations and
provide even more convenient connections to onward travel through
our international hub of Dubai," said Salem Obaidalla, Emirates'
Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Europe & Russian
The airline has offered flights to Vienna, the
City of Music, since 2004 and has flown to Hamburg, home of its
A380 finishing work, since 2006.
Emirates has also announced two brand new routes
for Europe so far this year. In Switzerland, where the airline has
served Zurich for nearly 20 years, a new daily service will start
to Geneva from 1 June.
On 1 August, flights will start to the Danish
capital, Copenhagen, representing the airline's first passenger
service into Scandinavia. Elsewhere on the network, a new flight
to Basra in Iraq starts tomorrow.
Currently, the airline serves 109 destinations
with a fleet of 151 aircraft, including 15 A380s.
