Emirates has expanded its Gatwick service from February 8, offering double daily flights to satisfy high demand. Since the start of the year, UK bookings from Gatwick alone have more than doubled.
Flight EK09 will land at Gatwick at 18:25 February 8 and return flight EK010 will depart at 20:25, arriving in Dubai (DXB) February 9 at 07:20.
This service joins the existing Flight EK015 landing at Gatwick at 11:40 and return flight EK016, departing at 13:35 and arriving in Dubai at 00:40 (all times local).
Richard Jewsbury, divisional vice president at Emirates UK commented: “We have seen a considerable uptick in demand for international travel in recent weeks, particularly from the South East and are pleased to be expanding our operations from Gatwick. The route has carried billions of pounds worth of cargo into and out of the region – supporting UK businesses of all shapes and sizes.”
