Emirates has confirmed it will launch flights to Amsterdam from 1 May 2010. The daily, non-stop service from Dubai will be operated with a combination of Boeing 777-200LR and 777-300ER aircraft, boasting a three-class configuration and the newest version of the ICE inflight entertainment system.

His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive, Emirates Airline & Group, said, "Amsterdam is already an important offline market for Emirates and we know there is significant passenger traffic heading from Amsterdam to Dubai and onto Africa, the Indian Sub-continent, Asia and the Far East."

"This is also a major freight hub and one of the world's renowned flower centres. Emirates has served The Netherlands as a freighter destination for fifteen years and currently offers six 747-400 freighter flights a week between Dubai and Amsterdam. The daily passenger flight will allow us to bolster our cargo offering by making use of the belly hold capacity," added Sheikh Ahmed.

Starting 1 May 2010, EK 145 will leave Dubai each day at 08:25 and arrive in Amsterdam at 13:30. From Amsterdam, EK 146 departs at 15:30, arriving in Dubai at 23:59.
