Emirates to launch Copenhagen service
Dubai, January 20, 2011
Emirates, the Dubai-based international airline, has announced the launch of non-stop, daily flights to Copenhagen in Denmark on August 1.
Copenhagen, Denmark’s capital city which attracts 1.3 million tourists a year, will become the Emirates’ 112th international destination and its 27th destination in Europe. Denmark is the 67th country that the carrier will fly to from Dubai.
“Copenhagen is an important hub for the whole of Scandinavia and the launch of our non-stop service will open up a new market for Emirates. It will also offer Denmark’s businesses easy connections to previously untapped markets,” said Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, chairman and chief executive, Emirates Airline & Group.
Starting August 1, EK 151 will leave Dubai each day at 0830hrs and arrive in Copenhagen at 1310hrs. From Copenhagen, EK 152 departs at 1455hrs, arriving in Dubai at 2315hrs.
Emirates will be operating an Airbus A330-200 on the Copenhagen route in a three-class configuration.
Passengers on all Emirates’ flights can also avail extra baggage allowance with 30 kg for those travelling in Economy, 40 kg for Business and 50 kg for First Class.
Copenhagen is the third new route announced by Emirates for 2011, following Basra on February 2 and Geneva on June 1.-TradeArabia News Service
