Daily service launches on 4 September 2013
Emirates announced today that it would expand its presence in Scandinavia by starting flights to Stockholm from September 4.
The daily route will be operated with a Boeing 777-300ER and offer three classes with eight seats in First Class, 42 seats in Business Class and 304 seats in Economy Class. With more than 130 destinations in its international network, Emirates says its customers in Sweden will benefit from good flight connections giving them access to 40 destinations in the east, west, Asia and Australia.
“After our successful launch in Copenhagen in 2011, we have carefully evaluated the potential for further expansion in Scandinavia”, said Tim Clark, president of Emirates. “With its stable and growing economy, Sweden is the perfect place to expand our regional presence.”
He added: “The new route will be the only scheduled direct passenger service between Dubai and Sweden, providing Swedish passengers with much easier access to our international network – including easy access to popular destinations such as Thailand, where we currently operate six flights every day.”
The new daily route to Stockholm will depart from Dubai at 07:15 and arrive in Stockholm Arlanda Airport at 12:00 on the same day. The return flight will depart at 13:55 and arrive in Dubai at 22.25.
