Emirates increases London Heathrow

Emirates increases London to 9 daily flights with a new 6th daily service into Heathrow effective 27MAR. 

The schedule is as follows:

EK 31 Dep DXB 1130 Arr LHR 1610
EK 32 Dep LHR 1950 Arr DXB 0550+1

Initially this new service will be operated using a 3 class Boeing 777-300ER however from 01JUN16 onwards, the A380 shall be used to upgrade it.

The schedule of EK 31 is ideal for DXB residents and will get some spill over transfer traffic who could not get seats on the more popular 0745/0940am departures. However, the EK 32 departure out of LHR shall prove to be very popular as it connects to nearly all of EK's destinations in Asia and Africa. One can expect EK to initiate special pricing to/from LHR in APR and MAY ensuring that to avail of the special fare, the DXB-LHR-DXB flight portions sold/ticketed have to be on EK 31-32 only.
