The Dubai-based airline will augment its Dubai to Rio de Janeiro route by introducing a fifth weekly frequency, effective December 7, 2024.

The newly added Saturday flight will augment the capacity on the route to Rio de Janeiro, responding to the escalating demand for travel along this corridor. Furthermore, the interconnected service allows travelers to seamlessly continue their journey to Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina.

By bolstering capacity on the Dubai/Rio de Janeiro/Buenos Aires route, Emirates aims to meet evolving market demand and provide customers with increased flexibility, choice, and connectivity. The introduction of the fifth scheduled service, operating as EK247 and EK248 in a 2-class configuration, will offer 302 seats on each flight in Economy Class and Business Class.

Emirates anticipates that the expanded services to Brazil and Argentina will facilitate enhanced connectivity for passengers traveling between these countries and various popular destinations within Emirates’ extensive network. These destinations include the UAE, Japan, Thailand, the Maldives, Egypt, mainland China, Hong Kong, Turkey, South Korea, India, Australia, and Indonesia.

Brazil and Argentina are home to the two largest Lebanese communities in Latin America, and Emirates regularly serves customers traveling to and from Beirut. Moreover, nationals from Brazil and Argentina benefit from visa-free travel to Dubai, making it a favored destination for holidays and short stopovers.

The additional flights per week are expected to foster trade between Argentina, Brazil, and the rest of the world. Emirates' Boeing 777 wide-body aircraft, with a cargo capacity of approximately 20 tons per flight, will play a crucial role in transporting regional exports from Argentina and Brazil to markets in the Middle East, Europe, and beyond, while supporting the import of essential goods, including pharmaceuticals.

Emirates' codeshare partnerships with GOL Airlines and Azul Airlines, along with interline partnerships with LATAM Airlines and Aerolineas Argentinas, enable customers to extend their journey beyond Rio de Janeiro to various domestic points, including Brasilia, Porto Alegre, Salvador, Curitiba, Recife, Santiago, and Panama City.
