- Emirates has started services to its 121st non-stop destination this week, launching daily services from its Dubai (DXB) mega-hub to Taipei Taoyuan (TPE) on 10 February. The 6,566-kilometre sector will be operated by the airline’s 400-seat 777-300s and will face no direct competition. Currently, Emirates is the only one of the MEB3 (Middle East Big 3) offering flights to Taipei. “Emirates and Taipei began their partnership in 2003 when Emirates Skycargo launched freighter services from Dubai. I am proud that we have been able to increase our commitment and begin daily, non-stop passenger services from today,” said His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Chairman and CEO, Emirates.
