Emirates, the Dubai-based flag carrier of the UAE, announced its plans to add a second daily flight on its Tel Aviv route, starting October 30, 2022.
The additional morning frequency, just a month after the airline’s inaugural flight to Israel, “is in response to high demand for travel to/from Israel, and builds on the success of Emirates’ existing operation.”
The second daily flight, EK 933, will depart Dubai at 8:15 am and land in Tel Aviv at 9:50 am. The return flight, EK 934, will then take off from Tel Aviv at 11:50 am, landing in Dubai at 4:50 pm. The flight will be operated using a Boeing 777-300ER in a three-class configuration.
The carrier further adds that the new flight will connect passengers to Emirates’ extensive global network, including destinations such as Auckland, Brisbane, Perth, Bali, Seoul, and Singapore, and quite a few in India, thus allowing Israeli passengers to reach new destinations in a shorter flight time.
The new service will allow customers traveling to Israel to choose between a morning arrival at Ben Gurion International airport or the existing evening flight, EK931.
In light of Emirates’ partnership with flydubai, passengers can enjoy a varied schedule on many daily codeshare flights.
Emirates offers passengers a unique flight experience. Customers in all classes can enjoy a highly advanced entertainment system, offering more than 5,000 entertainment channels to choose from, including movies and TV shows in Hebrew; regionally inspired menus; and a large selection of drinks alongside kosher meals that can be pre-ordered on all Emirates flights.
The airline’s second flight on the Dubai-Tel Aviv route will also provide 20 tonnes of cargo belly-hold capacity for businesses.
