Emirates will soon launch a new daily service to Brussels from 5 September 2014. This will be the airline’s 147th destination.
The new non-stop service will be operated by a Boeing 777 in a three-class configuration. Emirates will be the first international airline to offer a first class product from Brussels to the Middle East and Asia.
“Our research has shown that there is high demand for this route from across our network, from both business and public sector as well as leisure travellers. Belgium operates an open and private enterprise-based economy and we expect this new service to further boost bilateral trade and commerce between UAE and Belgium,” said Sir Tim Clark, president, Emirates airline.
The new service will greatly increase convenience and choice for the large number of Belgian consumers who currently have to travel via other airports to reach Dubai. Drawing around 7.5 million tourists each year, Belgium is also home to 11 UNESCO World Heritage sites. The daily flight to Brussels will depart Dubai as EK183 at 0750hrs* and arrives at Brussels International Airport, at 1315hrs* the same day. The return flight, EK184 will depart at 1445hrs* and arrives at Dubai International Airport at 2325hrs* the same day.
