Emirates is adding a second daily non-stop service from Dubai to Zurich beginning October 29th.
Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline, said, “The launch of Emirates’ second daily flight to Zurich is in direct response to the increasing demand for our services. Our Zurich route has been an overwhelming success and the increased frequency is testament to that success and for the growing demand for the Emirates product.”
“We are delighted to offer our customers the convenience of an optional timing from Dubai to Zurich, which will make it easier for them to meet their travel needs whether they are flying Emirates for business or pleasure.”
Emirates has seen month to month growth of passengers traveling in both directions on this route. Premium passengers enjoy a host of benefits including access to Emirates lounges and complimentary chauffeur drive to and from the airport.
On the second daily flight, the airline will use a 237-seat Airbus A330-200 aircraft, configured in three classes with 12 seats in First, 42 in Business and 183 in Economy. The new flight will also increase cargo capacity to Zurich, giving customers of Emirates SkyCargo greater flexibility in their operations.
The new flight, EK 085 will depart from Dubai at 4:15 p.m., arriving in Zurich at 7:45 p.m. The return flight, EK 086, will depart from Zurich at 9:15 p.m., arriving in Dubai at 6:00 a.m. the next morning.
