Emirates today announced that it will introduce three additional flights per week to the Swedish capital, complementing Emirates’ existing schedule and providing more choice to travellers from 8th December 2017.
The new scheduled flights will be added to meet the growing demand for travel on the route, particularly during the winter season. The new Emirates flight EK155 will commence from 8th December, departing Dubai at 1500, arriving at Stockholm Arlanda Airport at 1845. The return flight EK156 will depart ARN at 2110 arriving at Dubai International Airport at 0630 the following day.
The timing of the three additional flights provides easier connections between Stockholm and a number of popular East Asian and African destinations. The timing of the new flights also makes Dubai itself an even more favourable option for a long weekend or short break, the early morning arrival time allowing travellers from Sweden the whole day to kick start a holiday or short break in the U.A.E.
Operated by Emirates’ popular Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration, the new flights, like the current scheduled daily flight, will offer eight Private Suites in First Class, featuring automated sliding doors for privacy and personal mini-bar; 42 lie-flat seats in Business and 310 spacious seats in Economy.
Passengers travelling in First and Business Class also enjoy Premium Lounge access at Stockholm Arlanda airport as well as Emirates’ complimentary Chauffeur drive service providing transport to and from the airport within a 60km radius. As with all Emirates flights, passengers travelling on the three additional weekly Stockholm flights will be able to take advantage of the generous baggage allowance of up to 35kg in Economy, 40kg in Business and 50kg in First Class.
The current existing daily flight schedule: EK 157 departs Dubai at 0810 arriving at ARN at 1155, the return flight EK158 departs ARN at 1335, landing back in Dubai at 2255.
