As it works to restore its UK and international network, Emirates has resumed flights from London Stansted (STN). Emirates hasn’t operated a commercial flight out of Stansted since the epidemic halted operations there in March 2020.
The largest international airline in the world has advanced plans to raise capacity to a daily flight beginning today.
Emirates has increased its operations to London with nine daily flights, including six daily flights to Heathrow and a double daily trip to Gatwick, as a result of the resumption of services to Stansted.
This summer, consumers will have more travel options and better connectivity thanks to the newly introduced services, which will fulfill market demand. Emirates will fly wide-body Boeing 777-300ER aircraft to Stansted.
With EK065 departing Dubai at 08:50 and landing at London Stansted at 13:30, Emirates has resumed service. Then, at 21:10, EK068 will fly from Stansted to Dubai International (DXB), arriving at 07:10 (all times are local).
Emirates’ divisional vice president for the UK, Richard Jewsbury, said: “We are thrilled to be resuming services to and from Stansted.”
Steve Griffiths, London Stansted’s managing director, said: “The return of daily flights from London Stansted to Dubai with Emirates is fantastic news for the airport, and demonstrates the renewed confidence of airlines as we recover from the pandemic. The service proved to be extremely popular following its launch in 2018, so Emirates timely return is a huge boost, offering not only a vital link between the two destinations but right across the globe thanks to the airline’s worldwide route network available via Dubai.”
