New Zealanders now have a convenient new route to Scotland following Emirates celebrating the inaugural flight of its new service between Dubai and Edinburgh.
The new service, which offers connections in each direction with Emirates’ Auckland and Christchurch flights, makes Edinburgh the airline’s second destination in Scotland and the eighth in the United Kingdom.
The Boeing 777 deployed on the Dubai-Edinburgh route has a three-class cabin configuration, with eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie flat seats in Business Class and 304 spacious seats in Economy Class. As with all Emirates’ flights to the UK, customers will enjoy the more than 3500 channels of on demand audio and visual entertainment on the airline’s award-winning ice system, as well as the warm hospitality from its multinational cabin crew. Emirates also flies to Glasgow, as well as three London airports (Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted), and Manchester, Birmingham and Newcastle.
