LONDON – Emirates has announced their route between Dubai and London Gatwick will return on 10th December. A three-class configured Boeing 777 will operate the route.
Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Chief Commercial Officer commented, “We’re very pleased to resume Emirates flights to and from London Gatwick, offering more ways for people and businesses to connect with our ever growing global network. With the UK simplifying travel and accepting international vaccination certificates, we’ve seen a big surge in demand as people have been a lot more confident in booking trips for the coming months and further ahead, be it for business, a winter sun escape or to visit family and friends. Gatwick has long been a valued partner for Emirates and we look forward to welcoming passengers back onboard an Emirates flight soon.”
Gatwick will be Emirates’ sixth airport reinstated in the UK. London Heathrow receives six flights a day, alongside Gatwick’s flights in the London area. Emirates also operates to London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Newcastle. Globally, Emirates is approaching 90% of their pre-pandemic route network.
Stephen King, Head of Airline Relations, Gatwick Airport said: “We are delighted to welcome Emirates back to Gatwick in December. Emirates has been a hugely popular airline for Gatwick passengers and it’s fantastic that we are once again able to offer passengers across London and the South East the opportunity to connect with Dubai and beyond.”
