Emirates new daily Sydney service to take off to the sound of music

Travel News Asia 27 March 2003

Passengers in Sydney, Australia will find themselves serenaded by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra as they check in for their flight to Dubai on Sunday, March 30, 2003. The musicians will be setting the halls of Sydney International Airport alive to the sound of music as a fanfare for the official start of daily flights between the two cities.

The increase of Emirates' Sydney service from four to seven flights weekly brings the total number of Emirates' weekly flights to Australia - Sydney, Melbourne and Perth - to 18. That total will jump dramatically on October 26 when Emirates launches a new daily service between Dubai and Brisbane via Singapore, operating a Boeing 777-300 on the route.

October 26 is also the day when flights between Dubai and Sydney go non-stop with the debut on the route of the ultra long range Airbus A340-500.

Emirates has also just announced its sponsorship as Principal Partner of the symphony orchestras of Sydney, Melbourne and West Australia. Sunday's launch of daily flights will be the first time the airline and any of the orchestras have worked in concert.

Emirates' Commercial Operations Director Ghaith Al Ghaith, said: This is a great opportunity for Emirates and the Sydney Symphony to work together and for us to highlight our continuing involvement in the community. It's an exciting time for the airline, with major expansion taking place this year. We are delighted that these extra flights increase choices for passengers, especially for Australian passengers booking connecting flights to Emirates destinations beyond Dubai."
