On May 1 Emirates added a second daily flight from Athens to Dubai, responding to increased passenger demand.
The new flight, ΕΚ103, departs Dubai at 16:20 and arrives in Athens at 20:25.
The return flight, ΕΚ 104, departs from Athens at 23:20 and arrives in Dubai at 04:55 the following day.
According to the Dubai based carrier, less than two months after the launch of the daily, year-round Athens- New York service, its second daily flight is responding to the growing demand of passengers for this particular itinerary, and shows the preference by many for this airline.
Emirates has operated in Greece since 1996 initially with three weekly flights, gradually building up the number of flights and size of aircraft to meet the positive demand of the Greek travelling community.
The extra service is expected to provide better connections for business and leisure passengers travelling from Athens to the Middle East, Far East, Australasia and Africa.
“Now, we are introducing a double daily service to Dubai, bringing Emirates’ home city even closer to Athens, as demanded by our increasing, enthusiastic passengers. We are more than confident that the second daily service will be well supported by the Greek market, as it responds to travelers’ needs,” Country Manager of Emirates in Greece, Reema Al Marzooqi, said.
