Emirates and China

Emirates launched direct passenger flights to mainland China in 2004, with a daily service to Shanghai. Emirates now serves 35 flights per week to three destinations - twice daily to Beijing and Shanghai, and daily to Guangzhou. Emirates also operates cargo services with daily operations to Shanghai and three times weekly to Guangzhou. 

In 2017/18 we carried more than 1.5 million passengers and 123,000 tonnes of cargo to and from China. Since the launch of services in 2004, Emirates has carried more than 12.7 million passengers in total. The strength of Emirates’ operations is further highlighted by the high seat factors on all of our routes to China, averaging 83% over the past 5 years.
