From 31 March, Emirates will operate 35 flights a week between Dubai and Bangkok, plus a daily Airbus A380 service between Bangkok and Hong Kong, and a daily flight between Bangkok and Sydney, which connects on to Christchurch. These services, along with the Phuket flights, take the number of weekly Emirates departures from Thailand to 56.

31 March will also mark the start of the airline's fourth daily service between Kuala Lumpur and Dubai, while a third daily Manila service started on 1 January and a third daily

Jakarta service will commence on 1 March. Elsewhere in the region, the Singapore service received a boost in capacity following the introduction of a 517-seat A380 to the route in December 2012, while flights from Ho Chi Minh City were launched in June last year.

"This new service will benefit Thailand's tourism sector by bringing even more visitors from the likes of the Middle East and traditionally strong markets like Europe and Australasia. In addition, both our passengers and cargo customers will have the added flexibility of being able to choose from five flights a day between Dubai and Bangkok, and onwards to our expanding route network." said Salem Obaidalla, Emirates' Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Far East & Australasia.

Operated by a three-class Airbus 330-200L, EK376 will depart Dubai at 3:40am and arrive in Bangkok at 1:00pm. The return flight, EK377, will depart at 3:25pm the same day and arrive at Dubai International Airport at 6:30 pm. From 1 September, the service will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER, also in a three-class configuration.

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