Dubai’s Emirates to launch daily flights to Tel Aviv

The carrier has restored its Middle East network and currently flies to 12 cities across the region


Dubai carrier Emirates will launch a daily non-stop flight between Dubai and Tel Aviv in Israel, starting December 6, it announced today.

The airline will deploy its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three class configuration, offering private suites in first class and lie flat seats in business class.

Flight EK931 is scheduled to depart Dubai at 2.50pm, arriving at Ben Gurion Airport at 4.25pm local time. The return flight EK932 will depart Tel Aviv at 6.25pm, arriving in Dubai at 11.25pm local time.

With new daily flights, Israeli travellers will be able to connect through Dubai to Emirates’ global route network of over 120 destinations. The new flights also introduce inbound connections to Tel Aviv from close to 30 Emirates gateways across Australia, the US, Brazil, Mexico, India and South Africa. Travellers from the US looking to stop in Dubai before heading to Tel Aviv can avail the Dubai Stop Over package.

Emirates’ customers can also benefit from the airline’s codeshare partnership with flydubai, according connectivity from the emirate to points across the combined networks of both carriers, which currently consists of 210 destinations in 100 countries, a statement said.

Adnan Kazim, chief commercial officer, Emirates Airline said: “With the start of services in just a few weeks, Emirates will provide more options for travellers to fly better to and from Tel Aviv via Dubai. We also look forward to welcoming more business and leisure travellers from Israel to Dubai, and onwards to other destinations on Emirates’ network.”

In addition to passenger operations, Emirates SkyCargo will offer 20 tonnes of cargo capacity each way between Dubai and Tel Aviv on the Boeing 777-300ER to support exports of pharmaceuticals, high-tech goods, vegetables and other perishables from Tel Aviv.

The flights are also expected to transport manufacturing raw materials and components, semiconductors and e-commerce parcels into Israel, the carrier said. Emirates has restored its Middle East network and currently flies to 12 cities across the region.

The carrier has enhanced its operations to Australia as well, stepping up the frequency on flights EK414/415 between Dubai and Sydney to daily, which will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER.
