Emirates Airline becomes the second MEB3 carrier to serve Warsaw

Even before its aircraft touched down in Warsaw for the first time, the effect of Emirates Airline’s entry in the long-haul market from Poland could be felt with average competitor prices decreasing significantly. The launch ceremony in Warsaw last week was led by Thierry Antinori, VP Passenger Sales Worldwide; and Michał Marzec, Warsaw Airport’s CEO.

  • Emirates Airline inaugurated services from its Dubai (DXB) base to Warsaw (WAW) on 6 February. The Polish airport, which for a long time was neglected by MEB3 carriers, now enjoys daily A330-200-operated flights by Emirates in addition to the Doha service, which was launched by Qatar Airways with four-weekly, A320-operated frequencies in December 2012, but was since upgraded to daily. Interestingly, Emirates is only the second – after LOT Polish Airlines – carrier to deploy wide-body equipment to Warsaw, and the only airline to offer first class cabin service.
