Emirates to add third London airport to its network

Emirates to add third London airport to its network

Laurie Berryman, Emirates vice president, UK, said: "The introduction of the new London Stansted-Dubai route not only signifies 10 daily flights between Dubai and three different London Airports but is also welcome news to businesses based in the Stansted catchment area who, before now, travelled to central London to fly to airports with global reach".

The world's largest intercontinental airline will begin offering the Dubai-Stansted route June 8.

Stansted is London's third-largest airport and the fourth-busiest in the United Kingdom, but had previously failed to attract network carriers after becoming established as Europe's top discount hub.

The Stansted-Dubai route will be operated by three-class Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, offering six seats in First Class (including fully-enclosed private suites), 42 in Business Class and 306 in Economy Class.

Stansted, 35 miles north of London, has traditionally been a base for European airlines flying holiday routes and budget carriers like Ryanair RYA.I and easyJet EZJ.L , although full-service carrier British Airways ICAG.L started flying there previous year.

London Stansted has announced a significant step in its long-haul ambitions with the launch of a new daily Emirates service to Dubai starting next year.

It will be the third London airport Emirates flies to after London Heathrow and London Gatwick, and its seventh airport in the United Kingdom.

"Opening the London Stansted gateway was a strategic decision by Emirates to serve the thriving business community in London's northeast and the wider 7.5 million population that fall within its catchment area", Emirates said in a statement. The airport, located 35 miles north of London, is attractive partly because its runway has plenty of room for more flights, unlike the capital's capacity-constrained Heathrow and Gatwick hubs.

Stansted airport will also be vital for Emirates' SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates and the world's largest worldwide cargo airline, due to its large cargo handling capabilities.
