Emirates increases routes from Dubai

Emirates has confirmed that it is to increase the number of flights it offers from its hub in Dubai.

Such an expansion is set to increase the frequency of flights to destinations in the Far East, meaning the people with property in Dubai may be able to visit new destinations more easily.

Divisional senior vice-president of commercial operations worldwide Richard Vaughan said: "Despite the current economic environment, the Middle East and Far East regions continue to register growth in their travel and tourism industries."

The new services include the beginning of double-daily services from Dubai to Kuala Lumpur and the start-up of three more weekly flights from the hub to Jakarta.

Besides the increase in services from Dubai, Emirates has confirmed it is to open a new lounge at Manchester Airport this summer.

Currently the airline operates a twice-daily service to Dubai from Manchester. As part of the plans for the opening of the lounge, Emirates flights will move from terminal two to terminal one, which may also pave the way for an increase in capacity from the airport.
