Emirates officially resumes its Gatwick service today. Flight EK015 will land at Gatwick at 11:40 and return flight EK016 will depart at 13:35, arriving in Dubai (DXB) tomorrow at 00:40 (all times local).
The Gatwick resumption follows the quick restart of operations to London Heathrow, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Newcastle airports over recent months as the airline has responded to passenger demand.
The Gatwick service will operate daily and takes Emirates’ total UK weekly flights to 84. A second daily flight from Gatwick is also scheduled to start from January 27, 2022.
December will also see Emirates reopen lounges across UK hubs, including at Birmingham and Manchester. Glasgow and Gatwick’s lounges will follow, re-opening in January.
Richard Jewsbury, divisional vice president at Emirates UK commented: “We have continued to see demand for international travel, particularly from the South East, and are pleased to resuming operations from Gatwick. The route has also carried billions of pounds worth of cargo into and out of the region – supporting UK businesses of all shapes and sizes.”
