This additional route will bring the airline’s total number of daily flights to New Zealand to three.
The addition of this daily Dubai-Bali-Auckland service will bring the airline’s total number of daily flights to New Zealand to three, inclusive of its existing nonstop Dubai-Auckland service and its Airbus A380-operated Dubai-Sydney-Christchurch flights.
From Dubai, flight EK450 will depart at 6:55 a.m. (local time) to reach Bali at 8:20 p.m. on the same day, before continuing onto Auckland and arriving at 10 a.m. in New Zealand the following morning.
On the return, EK451 will fly at 12:40 p.m. and arrive in Denpasar at 5:55 p.m. that day. Following a stopover of just under two hours, the aircraft will proceed to Dubai at 7:50 p.m., landing the following morning at 12:45 a.m.
Like the current Bali flights, this route will also be served by the B777-300ER. However, unlike Emirates’ existing services to Bali, the aircraft on the new route will have three rather than two classes.
Last year, Emirates unveiled its new B777-300ER cabin products, which includes new, Mercedes-Benz-inspired first-class suites.
