Emirates has just added another flight to its growing third departure bank of Europe bound flights - albeit not daily. The new four weekly flight to Paris, adds to the carrier's already twice daily services to Charles De Gaulle. Operating with a Boeing 777-300ER, it will increase to five times weekly from 28th Oct onwards.
The schedule is below
EK071 DXB 0355 - 0905 CDG 77W 1357 (NEW)
EK073 DXB 0820 - 1330 CDG 388 D
EK075 DXB 1500 - 2010 CDG 77W D
EK072 CDG 1110 - 1910 DXB 77W 1357
EK074 CDG 1535 - 0015+1 DXB 388 D
EK076 CDG 2150 - 0620+1 DXB 77W D
Emirates' emerging third daily European bank already features four flights to key European cities. These are
EK007 to London Heathrow, departing DXB at 0230
EK011 to London Gatwick, departing DXB at 0250
EK021 to Manchester, departing DXB at 0300
EK043 to Frankfurt, departing DXB at 0320
It is only a matter of time when Emirates will add new flights to this bank, operating to possibly Birmingham, Milan, Rome, Zurich and more cities. These flights will be well fed from the traffic arriving from the rest of Emirates network, mainly originating out of South Asia.
Connections for the return flights, which form the third daily European arrivals bank for the airline - between 1900 and 2000 local time in Dubai, are also taken care of with plenty of departures in the following departure bank.
Emirates now operates almost 50 daily flights to Europe, with the largest share still belonging to the 0700-0900 departure bank out of Dubai.
Nevertheless, Emirates growth story is unlikely to take a rest any time soon and it is believed that Barcelona and Stockholm might be among the airline's next new stops in Europe. And with the addition of Qatar Airways' fifth daily flight to London Heathrow, it would not be surprising to see Emirates upgrade another of its daily Heathrow flights to an Airbus A380.
