UAE national carrier Emirates is set to reinforce its commitment to South Korea by introducing three additional weekly flights, starting from 19 February 2024.

This expansion marks a strong development in the airline’s services to Seoul, aiming to meet the growing demand for international travel to this popular East Asian destination.

Seoul EK324 and EK325 Flight Services


Emirates will operate the new flights under the designations EK324 and EK325 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

The Boeing 777-300ER aircraft will depart from Dubai at 0445hrs and touch down at Seoul Incheon International Airport at 1805hrs for the EK324 flight.

The return journey, EK325, will depart Seoul at 2200hrs, arriving in Dubai at 0315hrs the following day.

Capacity Boost: Meeting Demand


This initiative translates to a substantial increase in capacity, adding over 1,000 seats per week to flights between Dubai and Seoul.

The move is not only a response to the pent-up demand for international travel but also a testament to the strong bilateral relations between the UAE and South Korea.

Cargo Capacity Expansion

Beyond passenger capacity, Emirates is set to provide an additional 45 tonnes of cargo capacity between Dubai and Seoul through the three weekly Boeing 777 flights.

This expansion is poised to fortify trade and economic ties between the two nations, facilitating the seamless flow of goods not only to and from South Korea but also connecting Dubai to global destinations within Emirates’ extensive network.

A Decade-Long Partnership: Emirates and Seoul


Emirates’ journey with Seoul began in 2005, and this expansion solidifies its commitment to the region. Currently operating a daily Airbus A380 service from Dubai, the airline will enhance its services to Seoul with a total of 10 weekly flights.

This includes a mix of the iconic Airbus A380 and the efficient Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, providing passengers with increased flexibility and choice.
