July 04, 2018: In order to meet increased demand for travel on Dubai-Prague route, Emirates has launched a second daily flight to the key market with a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
The Dubai-headquartered airline has been serving the Czech market since 2010 and during this time has carried some 1.7 million passengers on the route.
The service also provides seamless connectivity to Prague from several popular destinations in Emirates’ and flydubai’s combined route network, including Bali, Bangkok, Colombo, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Kathmandu, Kuala Lumpur, Maldives, Mauritius and Singapore, with a convenient afternoon departure time from Dubai. Vietnam is a top destination for travellers from the Czech market, with Emirates serving both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. With this new service, customers travelling from Prague to Ho Chi Minh City will be able to take advantage of enhanced connection times in Dubai.
The airline supports opportunities for trade as well with this additional flight offering up to 20 tonnes of cargo capacity in the belly hold of the wide-body Boeing aircraft. Czech companies will now have further opportunities to export machinery, pharmaceuticals, perishables, glass and automotive parts to markets in the Middle and Far East, South-East Asia and Australia.
Flight EK137 leaves Dubai at 15:30 and arrives in Prague at 19:55. The return flight EK138 leaves Prague at 21:35 and arrives in Dubai at 05:30 the following day, giving travellers the full day in Dubai to kick-start their holiday, short break, or business trip, and take advantage of the wealth of activity and dining options the cosmopolitan city has to offer.
First Class and Business Class customers can take advantage of a complimentary chauffeur driven car to and from both Dubai and Prague airports as well as access to Emirates’ exclusive airport lounges worldwide, including Premium airport lounge access on departure at Prague airport.
The new flight route complements the existing daily schedule operated by an Emirates A380.
