Top European airlines start Dubai operations

DUBAI, December 20, 2015

Two major European airlines - Dutch flag carrier KLM and Lufthansa's long-haul budget carrier Eurowings - have started their debut flights to Dubai International, the world's busiest airport for international passengers.

KLM launched its operations on Thursday with a Boeing 787-9 service to Dubai International’s Terminal 1 from its hub Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

The inaugural flight, which reached Dubai at midnight, was welcomed with a traditional water salute, said a statement from Dubai International.

With this launch, the passengers flying on the Dubai-Amsterdam sector can now enjoy Boeing’s newest aircraft, it stated.

German carrier Eurowings took off on its inaugural flight from the German city of Cologne and landed at the Terminal 2 in the early hours on Friday.

The Lufthansa's low-cost wing will operate three non-stop flights between Dubai and Cologne every week, with the possibility of onward flights to Berlin or Hamburg, and many other locations in Europe.-TradeArabia News Service
