London Stansted welcomes return of Emirates service to Dubai
London Stanted Airport has welcomed the return of Emirates’ long-haul service between London Stansted and Dubai. The route was paused in March 2020 due to the pandemic. Flights are now operating daily using a 777-300ER.
“The return of daily flights from London Stansted to Dubai with Emirates is fantastic news for the airport and demonstrates the renewed confidence of airlines and passengers as we recover from the pandemic,” said Steve Griffiths, Managing Director, London Stansted Airport. “The service proved to be extremely popular following its launch in 2018, so Emirates timely return is a huge boost to passengers in London and the East of England, offering not only a vital link between the two destinations but right across the globe thanks to the airline’s worldwide route network available via Dubai.”
Richard Jewsbury, Emirates Divisional Vice President in the UK, commented: “We are delighted to be recommencing services to and from Stansted today and offering passengers further connectivity during the popular summer holiday period. Bookings in the UK and London have continued to surge with the further easing of travel restrictions and as appetite for international travel grows stronger. Stansted is a key hub for Emirates in the East and Southeast of the UK as we continue to scale up travel following the pandemic. We look forward to welcoming more passengers on board our premium Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in the coming months.”
