Expanding its presence in Scandinavia, Emirates has announced that it will begin operating a daily flight to Stockholm, Sweden from 4th September 2013.
Following our successful launch into Copenhagen, Denmark in 2011 we have been closely evaluating options for further expansion in Scandinavia. Sweden, with its stable and growing economy is the perfect location to extend our regional presence,” said Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline.
“This new service will provide the only scheduled direct passenger service between Dubai and Sweden, giving passengers out of Sweden much easier access to our international network including convenient connections to popular destinations such as, Thailand, where we currently operate six flights per day.”
Operated by a Boeing 777-300ER the daily service will offer three cabin classes with eight seats in First Class, 42 seats in Business Class and 304 seats in Economy Class. With over 130 destinations in its international network, Emirates customers in Sweden will benefit from convenient flight schedules that allow them to reach 40 destinations in the Far East, West Asia and Australasia.
“Timing new services to connect seamlessly across our network is an integral part of our planning. Having carefully assessed traffic trends we have ensured that passengers from Sweden will be able to reach over 25 destinations across the Far East with minimal transit time in Dubai, something that is incredibly valuable to our customers,” added Clark.
