Emirates today celebrated the inaugural flight of its new daily service from Dubai (DXB) to London Stansted (STN). The flight marks the first time an international airline based in the Middle East operates out of the popular London airport, and connects the East of England with Emirates’ global network of over 155 destinations via its hub Dubai.
The Emirates Boeing 777-300ER touched down just after 1400hrs. London Stansted is now the 7th airport in the UK from which Emirates operates and brings to 10 the number of daily flights between Dubai and three different London airports, with Stansted joining Gatwick and Heathrow.
The aircraft deployed on the route is Emirates’ new three-class Boeing 777-300ER, featuring its state-of-the-art, fully-enclosed private suites in First Class, and refreshed Business and Economy Class cabins. With floor to ceiling sliding doors and sleek design features, the new First-Class suites take luxury to the next level. The aircraft also sports newly-designed seats and upgraded inflight entertainment systems in all cabins.
The new offering was first unveiled at the Dubai Air Show in 2017 and this will the first time UK travellers are able to experience the updated product.
