Travelers flying from or via Dubai can take advantage of nine daily services to the British capital.
There’s now another way to avoid the summertime travel chaos at London Heathrow, where airport authorities have imposed a daily cap of 100,000 departing passengers due to staffing shortages and absences due to Covid. Emirates has just resumed passenger services to London Stansted, and brought forward plans to increase capacity from five weekly services to a daily flight.
The restored Dubai–Stansted route offers customers based in east and southeast England more options, flexibility, and convenience when traveling with Emirates to more than 130 destinations via the UAE. London Stansted will be served by Emirates’ wide-body Boeing 777-300ER aircraft fitted with its “Game Changer” first-class product. Flight EK65 will depart Dubai at 8:50 a.m. and arrive in London Stansted at 1:30 p.m. local time, after seven hours and 40 minutes in the air. The return flight, EK68, will leave London Stansted at 9:10 p.m. and land in Dubai at 7:10 a.m. the next morning.
Emirates currently serves seven gateways in the United Kingdom. By October, the airline will offer 110 weekly flights to the country, including six times daily to London Heathrow; daily service to London Stansted; double-daily A380 service to Gatwick; three times daily to Manchester (including a double-daily A380 service starting on October 1); double-daily service to Birmingham; five weekly flights to Newcastle; and a daily service to Glasgow.
