Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Monday, 14 July 2008

Emirates recently added a seventh frequency to its Brazil service, making its non-stop Dubai-Sao Paulo operation daily.

"We are very pleased with the success of our Dubai-Sao Paulo service. The introduction of a daily frequency to Brazil was a logical step for us. We are also delighted to see that awareness of Emirates and Dubai in Brazil seems to have bolstered since our introduction of services a year ago, making the Emirate a popular new destination for Brazilian tourists and business travellers alike," said Nigel Page, Emirates Senior Vice President Commercial Operations, The Americas.

In October 2007, Emirates' Dubai-Sao Paulo operation became the first-ever non-stop service between South America and the Middle East.

On the route, Emirates flies its state-of-the-art Boeing 777-200LR. The aircraft offers eight private suites in First class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business class, and generous space for 216 passengers in Economy. The 777-200LR additionally carries up to18 tonnes of cargo capacity.

In the Americas, Emirates offers nonstop daily service to Sao Paulo, Brazil and Houston, Texas, as well as operating three-times weekly to Toronto, Canada. Starting 1st October, Emirates will introduce a non-stop daily service from Dubai to Los Angeles and on 20th November, a non-stop daily service to San Francisco. In August 2008, Emirates will inaugurate the new Airbus A380 on its popular Dubai-JFK route, commencing the first-ever commercial service of the double-decker aircraft to the Americas. The Dubai-JFK service will continue to operate twice daily.
