Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Send to Friend ASIA Travel Latest Travel News Monday, 29 August 2011

Emirates is to operate two extra flights a week between Dubai and Narita International Airport in Japan from 1 November 2011.

Emirates has been flying to Narita since launching the route on 28 March, 2010 and will continue to use a Boeing 777-300ER on the route with eight private suites in First Class, 42 seats in Business Class and 304 Economy Class seats for a total of 354 seats; and also 23-tonnes of bellyhold cargo.

EK 318 will depart Dubai at 02:50, touching down at Narita International Airport at 17:35 the same day.

The return flight, EK 319 departs Narita at 22:00 offering passengers to arrive in Dubai at 03:50 the following day.

Japan is a vital market for Emirates and being able to increase the flights to a daily operation is a great testament to the partnership which has existed since we began operations to Japan, through Osaka, nine years ago, said Richard Jewsbury, Emirates Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Far East & Australasia. In the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake, Emirates continued operating flights to and from Narita as normal without interruption and maintained a service for those passengers who needed to travel during that difficult time. Emirates has been committed to helping Japan through this period of recovery. We appreciate that the Japanese authorities have recognised this commitment and allowed us to operate this daily service

Since 2002, Emirates has carried over 1.3 million people and 60,000 tonnes of cargo on its flights to Japan.

Dubai is an important hub for the re-export of Japanese manufactured products to the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia. The 23 tonnes of belly-hold cargo capacity will support Japanese exports of mechanical components, electronic goods and automobile parts to the UAE, and its import of gas and oil products.
