Emirates fortifies Far East

13th Oct 2005

Trade and tourism are on the upswing in the
Far East and Emirates has responded to strong customer demand by reinforcing
its route network - upping services and streamlining schedules to Hong Kong,
Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Jakarta.Richard Vaughan, Emirates’ Senior Vice President Commercial Operations East
Asia & Australasia said: “Emirates Airline is a hot favourite amongst
travellers in the Far East - in fact in the last financial year, strong
customer preference meant the East Asia and Australasia region was
responsible for 28 per cent of our revenue. By increasing our services, we
are providing our customers in key markets with more schedule flexibility,
capacity and choice.

“Our web of connections in the Far East offer travellers speed and
convenience, while travellers outbound from the region enjoy connecting to
Emirates’ vast network in the Middle East, Africa and Europe, and the
fantastic duty free at Dubai International Airport. As the Far Eastern
economies escalate, customers are increasingly relying on our wide-bodied
jets to provide more belly-hold cargo payloads to ease the capacity
constraints faced in these markets.”
