Emirates doubles services to Amsterdam

Emirates Airlines has confirmed it will serve Amsterdam with a second daily non-stop flight from December 4th.

The airline’s Boeing 777-200LR aircraft will add capacity of more than 3,700 seats a week in both directions.

The new daily service will complement Emirates’ popular Airbus A380 flight to Amsterdam, which commenced last August, less than two years after the launch of the route with a Boeing 777.

The second service will feature 266 seats in a three-class configuration - eight seats in First Class, 42 in Business Class and 216 in Economy Class.

Flight EK149 will leave Dubai at 16:10 to reach Amsterdam at 20:40.

The return flight EK150 will depart Amsterdam at 22:10, and will arrive in Dubai at 07:40 the next day.

“Our decision to add another daily service to Amsterdam is a direct result of a surge in customer demand.

“The enhanced capacity and schedule will offer our customers more choice when travelling between Amsterdam and Dubai and onwards to a multitude of destinations in the Indian subcontinent, Africa, Far East and Australasia,” said Hubert Frach, divisional senior vice president, commercial operations west.

“Emirates’ value proposition to travellers is exceptionally appealing, with more access and connections through our perfectly located hub in Dubai, and unsurpassed standards of luxury and sophistication in air travel.

“Amsterdam has also proven to be a strong market for First Class and Business Class travel, so there is no doubt that growth remains a key objective for Emirates in the Netherlands,” concluded Frach.
