Dubai: Emirates announced on Tuesday that it will introduce three additional flights per week to the Swedish capital, complementing the airline’s existing schedule and providing more choice to travellers from 8th December 2017.
The new flights will be added to meet the growing demand for travel on the route, particularly during the winter season.
Since launching its current daily scheduled service in September 2013, Emirates has continued to grow demand for both inbound and outbound travel. The introduction of the three additional flights on every Friday, Saturday and Sunday is in response to the increased demand.
The three new weekly flights will also enhance Sweden’s global long-haul connectivity, offering passengers travelling from Stockholm the chance to reach over 70 Emirates destinations in Asia, Australasia, Africa and the Middle East.
The new Emirates flight EK155 will commence from 8th December, departing Dubai at 3pm, arriving in Stockholm Arlanda Airport at 6.45pm. The return flight EK156 will depart 9.10pm and arrive at Dubai International Airport at 6.30 am the following day.
