Emirates Set To Return To The North East

Issue 73

Emirates, the world's largest international airline, is due to restart flights between Newcastle International Airport and Dubai from the 15th October.

Responding to the easing of travel restrictions and an upsurge in passenger demand, the airline will resume the much anticipated service from the North East earlier than planned – offering four weekly flights direct to Dubai and beyond via Emirates’ growing global network of 120 destinations.

Flights will depart Newcastle International Airport every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 21.10, arriving in Dubai the following day at 07.25. Flights will depart Dubai at 14.30, returning back to Newcastle at 19.10.

Nick Jones, Chief Executive of Newcastle International Airport said, “We are delighted that Emirates has brought forward its return to Newcastle International Airport and the North East with four weekly flights throughout the winter. A change of flight times to an evening departure will mean passengers can maximise their stay in Dubai whether on holiday or business whilst also ensuring connectivity to worldwide destinations via the Emirates network.”

Richard Jewsbury, Divisional Vice President UK at Emirates commented, “We’re incredibly pleased to resume Emirates flights to and from Newcastle, helping reconnect communities and businesses in the North East with Emirates’ extensive global network. Since the UAE moved to the UK’s ¬Ďamber list’ we’ve seen huge demand from passengers eagerly making travel plans – whether it’s to see family and friends, for education, business, or a long-awaited holiday. We look forward to welcoming passengers back onboard an Emirates flight soon.”

Dubai remains one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations, and thanks to the relaxation of testing requirements for passengers returning to the UK it is now another excellent option for passengers in the region looking for a winter getaway.

From sun-soaked beaches and heritage activities to world class hospitality and leisure facilities, Dubai offers a variety of experiences for everyone. It was one of the world’s first cities to obtain Safe Travels stamp from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) – which endorses Dubai’s comprehensive and effective measures to ensure guest health and safety.
