Emirates recently enhanced its presence in south-east Asia with the launch of a new daily linked service from Dubai to Yangon in Myanmar, and onwards to Hanoi in Vietnam.
This new service, which is being operated with a Boeing 777-300ER, expands the airline’s network in Southeast Asia to 12 cities in seven countries and offers more choices and convenience to passengers travelling between Hanoi and Yangon to Dubai and beyond.
Yangon, the first destination within Myanmar to be served by Emirates, is one of the fastest growing economies in south-east Asia.
As the country’s largest city and the most important commercial centre, Yangon contributes approximately one fifth to the country’s GDP.
Meanwhile, Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam and also a destination with rich culture and heritage for over a thousand years, becomes Emirates’ second gateway within the country following the launch of services to Ho Chi Minh City in 2012.
Flights to Yangon and Hanoi will depart daily from Dubai as EK388 at 03:30 arriving at Yangon International Airport at 11:40.
The service will then depart from Yangon at 13:00 and arrive at Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport at 15:30.
The return flight, EK389 will depart Hanoi at 22:50, arriving at Yangon at 00:20 the next day.
The service will then depart from Yangon at 01:50 and arrive at Dubai International Airport at 05:05.
