Dubai’s Emirates announces new Auckland route via Bali

The flight will be Emirates’ third a day to New Zealand

Dubai carrier Emirates has announced plans to launch a daily service to Auckland, New Zealand, via Bali.

The new flight from June 14 will mean the carrier provides three daily services to New Zealand including between Dubai and Auckland and Dubai and Christchurch via Sydney.

Emirates said the route was also the only year-round non-stop daily flight between Auckland and Bali, allowing passengers to stop over.

The service will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER with eight seats in first class, 42 in business class and 304 seats in economy class and 20 tonnes of cargo capacity.

Emirates president Sir Tim Clark said the route would serve the “strong demand” for travel to the two locations and provide passengers with the opportunity to stop over.

“We are confident that our year-round service between Auckland and Bali will be well received by our customers, not only in New Zealand and Indonesia, but also from our global network particularly from markets like the UK, Europe and the Middle East,” he said.

EK450 will leave Dubai International Airport at 6:55am and arrive in Bali’s Denpasar at 8:20pm. It will then leave for Auckland at 10:00pm and arrive at 10:00am the following day.

Return service EK451 will leave Auckland at 12:40pm arrive in Denpasar at 5:55pm and leave for Dubai at 7:50pm, with an expected arrival of 12:45am the next day.

The addition will mean a third daily service for the carrier between Dubai and Bali during the summer, reducing to a double daily service from October 28.

Emirates also announced flights to Chile’s Santiago last month via Sao Paulo.
