Emirates Launches Second Daily Flight Between Brussel and Dubai

Published on : Thursday, July 6, 2017

Brussels AirportAs of 29 October, the airline Emirates is set to run a second daily flight between Brussels Airport and Dubai International Airport. Flights to Dubai are enjoying rising success, which prompted the airline to increase its capacity in Brussels. The first Emirates flight from Brussels to Dubai will be departing at 3.05 pm, with the second flight scheduled for take-off at 8.15 pm.


Emirates has been running daily flights between Brussels Airport and Dubai International Airport since 2014. Last year, around 200,000 passengers flew Emirates from and to Brussels. Emirates’ flights have a load factor in excess of 80%.


One third of passengers take Dubai as their final destination, two thirds travel on to the Middle East, Asia, Eastern and Southern Africa and Australia. On the strength of this rising success, Emirates has decided to run a second daily flight in the evenings.


There is strong demand from passengers for flights to the Gulf States and Asia. Since the launch of direct flights to Dubai in 2014, some 538,000 passengers called on Emirates to fly out to Dubai. The extra daily flight lends added weight to the intercontinental network out of Brussels Airport and will only further support tourism and business relations in our country.


Emirates is operating a Boeing 777-300ER with more than 350 seats for its Brussels to Dubai flights. The same aircraft type will be used on the second daily flight. In addition to its attractive comfort and service offering for the benefit of passengers, the plane also has a large cargo hold, enabling it take up to 30 tonnes in airfreight.


Over 1,500 Belgian businesses export or import products from the Gulf States using Emirates. On the Dubai-bound flight, these are chiefly spare parts for cars and large machines, pharmaceutical products and chocolate, whereas inbound flights from Dubai largely bring e-commerce products, such as consumer electronics, and perishables such as food and flowers.
