Dubai’s Emirates to commence daily service to Tel Aviv in June

The first flight taking off from Dubai on June 23 will operate as EK931


Dubai-based carrier Emirates has confirmed that it will be commencing daily services to Tel Aviv from June 23, 2022.

Emirates will operate its three-class Boeing 777-300ER on the route, featuring eight private suites in first class, 42 lie flat seats in business class and 304 seats in economy class.

With multiple-daily codeshare flights operated by flydubai, the new Emirates flights will offer inbound connections from it points with multiple daily and weekly flights throughout Australia, India, Philippines, Thailand and South Africa.

Travellers from the US and Brazil can choose to stop for the Dubai Stop Over package before they continue their journey to Tel Aviv. In 2021, Israel was ranked as one of Dubai’s top 20 source markets, according to Dubai Department of Economy & Tourism.

Adnan Kazim, chief commercial officer, Emirates Airline said: “We look forward to finally welcoming customers onboard our flights to and from Tel Aviv this summer, and offer them substantial connectivity to and through our Dubai hub as Covid travel restrictions continue to ease around the world and more borders open up. In addition to unlocking tremendous pent-up demand, Emirates’ debut into Israel will mean more choice for travellers as they return to the skies, and more opportunities for businesses to visit Dubai and beyond.”

The new service to Tel Aviv will also provide 20 tonnes of cargo capacity on each flight, providing channels for Israeli businesses and startups to export products like pharmaceuticals, high-tech goods, fruits and vegetables and other perishables. The flights are also expected to transport manufacturing raw materials and components, semiconductors and e-commerce parcels into Israel.

Emirates Holidays, the tour operating arm of the airline will also provide Israeli travellers with personalised holidays to Dubai and across the carrier’s network.
