Emirates has announced its seventh daily service between Dubai and Bangkok, starting 1 July. The additional service, which will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, will help meet growing passenger demand. The new service will make Bangkok one of the most served destinations on the Emirates network, on par with Kuwait and Doha.
The new service joins the existing four daily A380 and two daily 777 flights that currently operate between Dubai and Bangkok, and enhances the weekly services on the route to 49, adding another 2,520 seats and up to 134 tonnes in cargo capacity per week in each direction between Bangkok and Dubai to further facilitate travel and trade opportunities between Thailand and Emirates’ global network.
From July 1, the new service operating daily as EK350 will depart Dubai at 7.50pm and arrive at Suvarnabhumi International Airport at 5.10am the following day*. This flight provides an attractive departure time for travellers from the UAE and Middle East with an early morning arrival in Bangkok enabling a full day ahead for business or leisure activity. Furthermore, it would allow numerous connections to regional points with codeshare partner Bangkok Airways.
The return flight, EK351, will depart Bangkok at 6.35am and arrive in Dubai the same day at 9.50am from July 2**. This flight will connect seamlessly with a number of destinations in Europe such as London, Frankfurt, Lisbon, Istanbul, Madrid and Barcelona.
As with all Emirates flights, passengers on the new service will benefit from a baggage allowance of 30kg in Economy Class, 40kg in Business Class and 50 kg in First Class.
