Additionally, it aims to fortify the tourism flow to and from Korea.

Strategic timing to enhance connectivity

The timings for these new flights have been thoughtfully chosen to enhance passenger connectivity between Korea and Emirates Airlines' extensive European network, which spans 38 destinations. This strategic alignment is intended to better meet the diverse travel needs of customers.

A Continual Evolution Since 2005

Emirates Airlines initiated its service to Seoul in 2005 and currently operates a daily flight with an Airbus A380 from Dubai. With the imminent addition of three more flights in February, the carrier will boast a frequency of 10 flights per week. The expanded schedule will feature a mix of modern Airbus A380 and Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, providing passengers with increased flexibility and diverse options when traveling to and from Dubai. This enhanced connectivity extends across Emirates Airlines' global network, encompassing over 130 cities.
