Emirates has announced its plans to augment its service to London Heathrow with an additional five weekly flights, slated to operate from October 31, 2023, until March 30, 2024. This strategic move aims to address the heightened demand anticipated during the bustling winter season and provide travellers with increased options for their journeys.

Presently, Emirates has a presence at London Heathrow, with an existing schedule of six daily A380 flights. The supplementary flights will be scheduled for Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and will be facilitated by Emirates’ state-of-the-art Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

These aircraft are configured to accommodate passengers in a luxurious three-class layout comprising First, Business, and Economy classes.

The newly introduced service, designated as flight EK41, is set to depart from Dubai at 13:20hrs and touch down at London Heathrow at 17:20hrs, local time. The return leg, flight EK42, will embark from London Heathrow at 20:15hrs and conclude its journey in Dubai at 07:15hrs local time the following day.
