Emirates has inaugurated direct flights to Adelaide, with the first of the four-weekly services arriving on November 1. The 777-300ER-operated services will be increased to daily in February.
“We have long held ambitions to operate flights to Adelaide, and today heralds a new level of connectivity from South Australia to Dubai, and the world with Emirates international network of more than 120 destinations,” Salem Obaidalla, Emirates’ senior vice president commercial operations, Far East and Australasia, said.
“When the service becomes daily from 1st February, it will mean nearly 5,000 additional international seats per week on the route, representing a 30 per cent increase for the market, boosting jobs and investment in South Australia’s AUS$ 5.3 billion tourism sector and adding 14 tonnes of commercial cargo space on each flight.”
