- Three extra flights a week throughout the winter season
Emirates has announced that it will introduce three additional flights per week to the Swedish capital, complementing Emirates’ existing schedule and providing more choice to travellers from 8December.
The new scheduled 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 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 1500, arriving in Stockholm Arlanda Airport at 1845. The return flight EK156 will depart ARN at 2110 arriving at Dubai International Airport at 0630 the following day.
The timing of the three additional flights provides easier connections between Stockholm and a number of popular East Asian and African destinations.
Operated by Emirates’ popular Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration, the new flights, like the current scheduled daily flight, will offer eight Private Suites in First Class, featuring automated sliding doors for privacy and personal mini-bar; 42 lie-flat seats in Business and 310 spacious seats in Economy.
