Full service returning from December 2022
Emirates is resuming pre-pandemic daily flights to Newcastle airport from Dubai International from 1 December 2022.
The move will see the airline is adding two extra frequencies a week to the north-east to meet continued demand. An earlier lunchtime departure is being introduced to improve onward connections to Thailand, Australia, Malaysia and the Indian Ocean.
Once daily flights resume, Emirates will be running 119 weekly flights across seven UK hubs, including Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Newcastle.
The airline deploys two class Boeing 777s to Newcastle.
Emirates UK divisional vice president Richard Jewsbury said: “We’re excited to be scaling up our operations to and from Newcastle airport to offer a daily service from 1 December, in order to provide even better connectivity to people in the north-east of England.
“With a steady growth in bookings to Dubai and beyond from the airport, we expect this trend to continue over the busy Christmas and New Year period.”
Newcastle airport chief executive Nick Jones said: “Emirates’ Dubai service has gone from strength to strength over the past 12 months. We are all pleased that demand for the iconic eastbound service has continued to grow resulting in the return of their pre-pandemic daily schedule, departing at lunchtime.
“Not only does this investment represent the airline’s confidence in our airport, but opens up even more opportunities for the north-east public to connect to the world via Dubai in addition to creating even more cargo capacity.”
