EMIRATES INAUGURAL FLIGHT TO STOCKHOLM READY TO TAKE OFF
(Posted 04th September 2013)
As this article is uploaded will the check in for Emirates’ inaugural flight from Dubai to Stockholm come to a close, getting the inaugural flight ready to take off at 07.15 a.m. UAE time or 06.15 a.m. East African time.
The new route will from today be served daily with a B777-300ER, the airline’s largest twin jet aircraft, bringing Emirates’ number of destinations to now 134, to be followed on October 01st by number 135, being Clark International, the former US Clark Air Force base in the Philippines.
The route to Sweden will allow Swedes to now fly nonstop to Dubai, and with more than 15.000 of them visiting the Emirate on holiday last year, the demand will undoubtedly be there to sustain the operation. Cargo shipments too are important as over 200 Swedish companies have over the years established offices and factories in Dubai and more than 4.000 Swede nationals live there as expatriates.
Best wishes for Happy Landings to the inaugural flight, which from today onwards will also offer East African travellers another choice of how to reach Scandinavia in general and Sweden in particular. Earlier this week did Emirates launch a week long special fares offer across their Eastern African markets, yet more reason to celebrate. Champagne anyone??? Visit www.emirates.com for more details.
