Emirates increases Frankfurt frequency
Emirates is responding to strong passenger demand in Germany by launching an extra flight to Frankfurt and upgrading one of its Munich flights to an A380 superjumbo.
The addition of one more daily Frankfurt flight, a move planned for later this year, will make the service a triple daily.
According to an Emirates statement, ‘the additional daily will be operated in accordance with the current air services arrangements between the UAE and Germany’.
From January 1 next year, one of Emirates two daily services to Munich will be served by an A380.
"A third daily flight to Frankfurt and the German-built A380 serving Munich is another positive step in what is now a multi-billion US dollar relationship between Emirates and Germany, supporting thousands of German jobs," said Salem Obaidalla, Emirates' senior vice president, commercial operations, Europe & Russian Federation.
"Meeting clear demand is of direct benefit to consumers, who want more choice, and to the German economy. We know international air services are a key driver of economic growth, facilitating the flow of business and cargo and opening up new markets to German exporters and importers.”
“Frankfurt welcomes the 3rd daily service by Emirates. This will strengthen Frankfurt’s position as one of the leading hubs of international aviation,” said Petra Roth, Lord Mayor of Frankfurt.
