Thailand and Australia, but also opens up a new connection between Bangkok
and Sydney for travellers and shippers. Initially operating on Tuesdays,
Thursdays and Saturdays, Emirates will increase this to a daily service from

three-class configuration on the route offering 18, 42 and 320 seats in

current daily non-stop service between Dubai and Sydney, bringing the total
number of Sydney flights to twice-daily by May.
