Dubai, UAE, 16 May 2016: Emirates today announced its seventh daily service between Dubai and Bangkok starting from 1 July.
The additional service, which will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, will help meet growing passenger demand, affirming Thailand’s position as a popular destination for business and leisure. It will make Bangkok one of the most served destinations on the Emirates network, on par with Kuwait and Doha.
The new service joins the existing four daily A380 and two daily 777 flights that currently operate between Dubai and Bangkok, and enhances the weekly services on the route to 49, adding another 2,520 seats and up to 134 tonnes in cargo capacity per week in each direction between Bangkok and Dubai to further facilitate travel and trade opportunities between Thailand and Emirates’ global network.
Passengers on Emirates flights enjoy the renowned hospitality of its multi-national Cabin Crew, as well as gourmet cuisine and Emirates’ award-winning ice entertainment system. With up to 2,500 channels including movies, television programmes, games, audio books, and music, ice has been named the world’s best inflight entertainment system by Skytrax for 11 consecutive years.
From July 1, the new service operating daily as EK350 will depart Dubai at 1950hrs and arrive at Suvarnabhumi International Airport at 0510hrs the following day*. This flight provides an attractive departure time for travellers from the UAE and Middle East with an early morning arrival in Bangkok enabling a full day ahead for business or leisure activity. Furthermore, it would allow numerous connections to regional points with our codeshare partner, Bangkok Airways.
