Emirates expands east with new service to Adelaide

Emirates is embarking on a major expansion of its eastern route network with Adelaide being the next destination to be launched next November, on top of the 12 new routes worldwide already being rolled out in 2012.

Emirates will be launching four weekly flights to Adelaide, the airlineÂ’s fifth destination in Australia
From 1 November, Emirates will launch four weekly flights to Adelaide, rising to a daily service from 1 February 2013. Adelaide will be the airline's fifth destination in Australia which is currently served with 70 flights per week.

In addition, the airline's current double-daily service to Perth will grow to 19 weekly flights from 1 December, becoming a triple daily operation from 1 March next year.

 "The addition of Adelaide to our network and the boost to our Perth operations demonstrates our commitment to investment and growth in our Australian operations and highlights the economic strength and global demand for the two cities as business, leisure and investment destinations," said Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive, Emirates Airline & Group.

The airline currently has a fleet of 176 aircraft, including the world's largest Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 fleet, to 124 destinations - supported globally by more than 60,000 staff.

Emirates operates flights on a daily schedule from Malta to Dubai via Larnaka, Cyprus.
