Emirates, the Dubai-based international airline, is increasing its frequency to the French capital to a double daily service on 26th March, increasing both seat and cargo capacity on the route. The airline currently operates 12 flights a week to Paris and is proud to see the service go to a double daily frequency which offers customers greater flexibility when making their travel plans.
His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive Emirates Airline and Group, said:
“The increase of Emirates’ flights to Paris is in direct response to greater demand for our services and product in France which is an increasingly important market for us. During the past four years we have steadily increased our services to Paris as and when we have been allowed to from just three flights a week to double daily.”
“The growth of Emirates services to and from Paris has been dramatic. At every stage the increases we have introduced have been matched by higher and higher passenger levels and we are delighted to now offer our customers the convenience of this additional frequency from Dubai to Paris, which will make it easier for them to meet their travel needs whether they are flying Emirates on business or pleasure.”
These additional frequencies will be operated by one of Emirates 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 Paris, giving customers of Emirates SkyCargo greater flexibility in their operations.
Emirates has seen consistent growth of passengers travelling in both directions on this route and so the move to a second daily service is the logical extension to the airline’s existing flights to the city. Premium passengers will enjoy a host of benefits including access to Emirates exclusive passenger lounges in both Dubai and Paris as well as complimentary chauffeur drive to and from the airport.
Emirates additional service to Paris, EK 075, will depart Dubai at 15.00hrs, arriving in Paris at 20.20hrs the same day, the return flight, EK 076, will leave Paris at 21.50hrs, arriving in Dubai at 06.30hrs the next day.
The addition of these services to Paris gives Emirates’ passengers the flexibility of travelling to the city in the morning or in the afternoon. Members of Skywards, Emirates’ frequent flyer programme, can earn Skywards Miles when flying in any class between Dubai and Paris in either direction.
