As other companies tighten their belts, Emirates Airlines are expanding still further, with the launch of yet another route from Dubai. From November, the airline will fly to South Korea’s Incheon International Airport.
“Seoul has been an extremely successful market for Emirates since we introduced services in 2005,” said Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, chairman and chief executive of Emirates Airline yesterday.
“In 2004, just 37,000 passengers a year travelled between Dubai and Seoul where as today it is over 260,000. This new aircraft will allow us to further develop this market as well as encourage more tourism and trade to South Korea.”
