Emirates' service between Adelaide and Dubai opens new trade opportunities between the Australia and the Middle East. South Australian travellers will also benefit from better connections and faster travel times to more global destinations, including Emirates' 33 destinations in Europe.

Initially Emirates flight EK440 will operate four times weekly, serviced by Emirates' state-of-the-art Boeing 777-300R aircraft, increasing to daily services from 1 February 2013.

"We are investing in South Australia for the long haul, dedicating a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft to the route fitted with our highest on-board product offering and employing more than 150 South Australians in airline and airport service," said Salem Obaidalla, Emirates' Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Far East & Australasia.

Emirates flight EK440 departs Dubai every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday at 0200hrs, arriving in Adelaide at 2050hrs. The return journey leaves Adelaide at 2235hrs and arrives in Dubai at 0515hrs the next day.
