Dubai’s Emirates to reinstate flights to Newcastle, boost services across Europe

By the end of October, the airline will offer 77 weekly flights to the UK

Dubai’s Emirates will reinstate flights to Newcastle Airport (NCL) from October 15, offering four weekly flights to the northeast of England.

All flights will be operated by the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a two class configuration. The first flight, EK033, will depart Dubai International (DXB) at 2.30pm and arrive in Newcastle (NCL) at 7.10pm, while flight EK034 will depart Newcastle at 9.10pm and arrive in Dubai the following day at 7.25am.

By the end of October, the airline will offer 77 weekly flights to the UK.

UK weekly operations include a six times daily London Heathrow operation with five A380 services; double daily A380 flights to Manchester, 10 weekly services to Birmingham, daily services to Glasgow and four weekly services to Newcastle.


Earlier this month, UAE moved onto the UK’s ‘amber’ list for travel, and travellers arriving in the UK from Dubai no longer need to quarantine in a government-approved hotel.

Emirates is scaling up services with additional route resumptions and more flights across its European network.

In Germany, Emirates will expand frequencies to daily flights in Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich, with a total of 50 flights a week by October 31. Flights between Dusseldorf and Dubai, as well as between Hamburg and Dubai, will also be upgraded to the Emirates A380 to offer more capacity between both cities.

Emirates has also announced route restarts in other parts of its global network, including the resumption of flights between Male and Colombo from September 1.

By mid-October, Emirates will also increase its service between Male and Dubai to four daily flights. Other routes that will see increased frequencies include Muscat with four weekly flights from August 28 and Sao Paulo, which will have daily flights from October 5.

The airline has resumed passenger services to over 120 destinations and has recovered close to 90 per cent of its pre-pandemic network.
