Emirates announces new flights to Australia and Singapore

Emirates Airlines announced its sixth daily service to Australia and second daily service to Singapore with the upgrade of its service between Dubai and Melbourne via Singapore.

The flights will be available starting March 1, 2016, and EK405 will be operated in the Emirates flagship A380 that offers a larger seat capacity.

Customers will also have another seamless A380 connection option when travelling to Melbourne or Singapore from a number of U.S., Europe and Middle East destinations globally through its hub in Dubai. With the addition of this service, Australia will become the third-largest A380 destination for Emirates globally with a total of six daily flights.

Passengers in all three cabins can enjoy more than 2,000 channels of the latest movies, TV shows and music from around the world alongside a range of games on the award-winning in-flight entertainment system. The latest technology allows passengers to stay connected throughout the flight with high-speed Wi-Fi access and mobile phone and data services.

"Emirates’ daily service between Dubai and Melbourne through Singapore has proved a popular choice among travelers and we’re pleased to be able to provide additional capacity on this route by up-gauging the aircraft to our flagship A380,” Barry Brown, Emirates divisional senior vice president, said.
