Emirates Launches Daily Flights to Yangon and Hanoi

Emirates has made getting to Southeast Asia easier with the launch of a new daily linked service from Dubai to Yangon in Myanmar, and onwards to Hanoi in Vietnam. This new service, which is being operated with a B777-300ER, expands the airline’s network in Southeast Asia to 12 cities in seven countries.

Yangon, the first destination within Myanmar to be served by Emirates, is one of the fastest growing economies in Southeast Asia. The previously undiscovered country offers visitors a rare glimpse of ancient Asia and since the opening up of tourism, has witnessed an increase in foreign tourist arrivals.

Meanwhile, Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam and also a destination with rich culture and heritage for over a thousand years, becomes Emirates’ second gateway within the country following the launch of services to Ho Chi Minh City in 2012, the same year that the Dublin to Dubai service commenced.

Few international airlines fly to Yangon and from Dublin the journey could involve multiple transfers. Now passengers can reach Myanmar with just one stop in Dubai. For those heading to Vietnam, they have the opportunity to explore both north and south flying in to Ho Chi Ming City and back from Hanoi.

Departing from Dublin on the lunchtime flight (13.50) and landing in Dubai at 00.25 will allow passengers from Dublin to connect easily with flights to Yangon and Hanoi, which depart daily at 03.30. On arrival in Yangon International Airport at 11.40, the service will then depart for Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport at 13.00.
