Emirates Adds Second Daily Flight from Athens to Dubai

Emirates on May 1 added a second daily flight from Athens to Dubai, responding to passenger demand for increased frequencies and capacity.

The new flight, ΕΚ103, departs Dubai at 16:20 and arrives in Athens at 20:25. The return flight, ΕΚ 104, departs from Athens at 23:20 and arrives in Dubai at 04:55 the following day.

According to the Dubai based carrier, less than two months after the launch of the daily, year-round Athens-New York service, its second daily flight is responding to the growing demand of passengers for the particular itinerary, and indicates the strong bonds between Emirates and Greece.

Emirates has operated in Greece since 1996 initially with three weekly flights, gradually building up the number of flights and size of aircraft to meet the positive demand of the Greek travelling community.

The extra service is expected to provide more seamless connections for business and leisure passengers travelling from Athens to the Middle East, Far East, Australasia and Africa.

“Emirates in Greece has had a very successful year, with the launching of the direct, year-round Athens-New York service being the absolute highlight of the industry so far,” Country Manager of Emirates in Greece, Reema Al Marzooqi, said.

“Now, we are introducing a double daily service to Dubai, bringing Emirates’ home city even closer to Athens, as demanded by our increasing, enthusiastic passengers. We are more than confident that the second daily service will be well supported by the Greek market, as it responds to travelers’ needs.”
