Emirates to Increase Capacity to Bangkok and Hong Kong

Emirates announced today an increase in capacity on its Bangkok and Hong Kong services. Bangkok, one of Emirates’ earliest destinations in the Far East, joining the network in 1990, will receive a second daily, non-stop Airbus A380 service from 27th October 2013, operating as EK372 that will depart Dubai at 09.40 and arrive in Bangkok at 18.40. The return flight EK373 will depart Bangkok at 20.40 and arrive in Dubai the following day at 00.30. Emirates to Hong Kong

Emirates will also be strengthening is commitment to Hong Kong with the launch of a fourth daily service from Dubai, operating non-stop as EK386 departing Dubai at 21.00 and arriving in Hong Kong the following morning at 08.05. The return flight EK387 will depart Hong Kong at 09.40 arriving in Dubai at 14.55. The new service will initially be operated by an Airbus A330-200 in a three-class configuration before being upgraded to a Boeing 777-300ER later in the year.

“The addition of a second daily A380 flight to Bangkok and a fourth daily service to Hong Kong demonstrates Emirates’ commitment to both Thailand and Hong Kong,” said Salem Obaidalla, Emirates’ Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations Far East & Australasia. “Earlier this year we launched our fifth daily flight to Bangkok and the passenger demand has led to the decision to operate the second A380 on the route. Thailand has been part of the Emirates network for over 20 years and in December we added Phuket as our second Thai destination.

“We have been steadily increasing the number of services to Hong Kong and this fourth flight gives our customers the flexibility to choose a departure time that fits with their schedule and connect through Dubai to destinations on our ever expanding global network.”

Emirates currently flies to 133 destinations in 77 countries including 23 destinations in 12 countries in the Far East and Australasia. From Bangkok, Emirates offers services to Dubai, Hong Kong, Sydney and Christchurch; from Hong Kong Emirates offers flights to Dubai and Bangkok.
