Emirates restarts flights from London Stansted

In response to growing international demand, Emirates restarted flights to Dubai from London Stansted* on 1 August 2022. The airline has begun with five-weekly flights but plans to increase this to daily flights over the coming weeks.

With its return to London Stansted, Emirates now offers flights from three London airports. In addition to London Stansted, London Gatwick* offers twice-daily flights and London Heathrow* no fewer than six flights per day.

Emirates Divisional Vice President in the UK, Richard Jewsbury, said: "We are delighted to be recommencing services to and from Stansted and offering passengers further connectivity during the popular summer holiday period.

"Bookings in the UK and London have continued to surge with the further easing of travel restrictions and as appetite for international travel grows stronger. Stansted is a key hub for Emirates in the east and southeast of the UK as we continue to scale up travel following the pandemic."

Emirates to reinstate its A380 service between Dubai & Bangkok

Proving that recovery is well underway, Emirates has announced that it will reintroduce its flagship A380 service on its route between Dubai and Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport from 28 November 2021.

The supersized aircraft is needed to meet demand from passengers keen to get back to exploring Thailand*, which is now easier following the reopening of the Thai border to international tourists on 1 November 2021.

The addition of the A380 service will take the total number of daily flights to the Thai capital to three, with the other two operated by Boeing 777 aircraft.
