Emirates, ONE of the world’s fastest growing airlines, has further extended its European reach by starting its first daily non-stop service to Lisbon.
This comes just six days after launching flights to Barcelona in neighbouring Spain.
“Emirates has become the only carrier in the Middle East operating into Portugal with a daily non-stop service, doing more than just transporting passengers from one point to another, but also opening trade opportunities that didn’t exist before,” said Thierry Antinori, Emirates’ executive vice-president, passenger sales worldwide.
“Our broad network of 20 points in the Far East and Australasia, 17 across the Middle East and more than 180 flights to India every week, will offer travellers from Lisbon and beyond easier access to a vast range of worldwide destinations.
“This is coupled with an unparallelled experience in the air with on-board features like ice, our award-winning in-flight entertainment system, world-class service and gourmet cuisine.”
Emirates will serve Lisbon with a Boeing 777-200ER offering 274 seats in a three-class configuration.
