This exciting development, originally planned for February 1st, 2025, has been strategically moved forward.

Strengthened Service to Ho Chi Minh City

This new service strengthens air travel options for Ho Chi Minh City and surrounding areas. It streamlines travel processes, opens doors for increased tourism, and fosters trade opportunities.

Passengers flying to or from Ho Chi Minh City will enjoy greater flexibility and access to a wider network of popular destinations around the world.

These include major cities like Amsterdam, Barcelona, Frankfurt, London, and many more.

World-Class In-Flight Experience

The Emirates story started in 1985 when it launched operations with just two aircraft. Today, it operates the world’s biggest fleets of Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 widebody aircraft.

The airline has moved from strength to strength, and entered 2024 with strong momentum, off a very profitable FY2023/24.

Emirates’ total passenger and cargo capacity increased by 20% to 57.7 billion ATKMs in 2023-24, recovering to near pre-pandemic levels.

Providing customers with more connection options, Emirates recently restarted services to Tokyo Haneda. It added capacity to 29 destinations, and launched new daily flights to Montréal, Canada.

Emirates also inked codeshare and interline agreements with 11 new airline partners, further extending its network’s reach.
