Emirates is announcing it will introduce a larger aircraft boosting capacity on the recently established Dubai-Dublin route beginning July 1st. The move follows the very high demand observed on the route since first operated on January 9th . The carrier will be replacing the 237-seat Airbus A330-200 with a Boeing 777-300ER configured with 8 First Class private seats, 42 lie-flat Business Class seats and 310 Economy Class seats.
Five days ago the carrier already announced it was bringing an additional daily flight to satisfy growing demand on the Dubai-Madrid route from July 1st while opening the new Dubai-Barcelona route with one daily flight from July 3rd. Both routes will be served by Boeing 777-300ER.
Great expectations are also building as the carrier is set to launch its new daily service between Dubai and Dallas Fort Worth on February 2nd also employing a Boeing 777-300ER
The Dubai global super hub allows passengers to simplify travel itineraries by offering just one connecting point between most globally remote destinations. The carrier which is currently the world’s largest operator of Boeing 777 (up to 99) and Airbus A380 (20) has suggested that leveraging on Dubai’s uniquely advantageous geographical location allows almost exponential traffic growth. Recent aircraft orders for up to 50 Boeing 777-300ER and remaining backlog order for up to 70 Airbus A380-800 confirms their model’s potential for growth.
