Emirates to launch additional Phuket flights
Emirates has announced four new weekly flights between Phuket and Dubai starting on December 1. Adding a capacity increase of 57 per cent, the four new flights will introduce connectivity from most cities in the Americas for the first time, as well as improve connections to a number of key destinations in Europe and the Middle East via one convenient stop in Dubai. “Since the launch of our flights to Phuket in 2012, the demand has increased dramatically. The fact that we are now adding a further four weekly flights highlights not only the desirability of the destination but also the wish of passengers to travel with Emirates,” noted Thierry Antinori, Emirates’ Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer.
