Emirates has taken yet another significant step in the resumption of its Australia capacity by increasing its service to two major cities — Sydney and Melbourne.
The airline will also restart services to Christchurch, New Zealand via Sydney, offering a new path for Australians across the trans-Tasman route.
From March 26, Melbourne will increase from two to three daily services between Emirates’ Dubai hub via Singapore, with a third direct service to also begin to Sydney from May 1.
Adnan Kazim, Chief Commercial Officer Emirates Airline, said, "Adding a third daily service to Sydney and Melbourne will offer over 500,000 additional seats to and from Australia in a year. To have the two cities operating back at pre-pandemic frequencies is a phenomenal milestone in our restoration of Australia capacity and testament to our long-standing commitment to flying down under.
