Emirates will expand its European network with the addition of a daily flight to Oslo. The new flight will commence from 2 September 2014.
Operated by a Boeing 777-300ER, the daily service will offer three cabin classes with eight seats in first class, 42 seats in business class and 310 seats in economy class. Among the most popular destinations for Norwegians include Bangkok, Phuket, Singapore, Manila, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong.
“We believe that Emirates’ new Oslo service will stimulate further growth via trade, tourism and investment flows into the country, by providing critical air transport links with emerging markets in the Middle East, Far East, West Asia and Africa. We also look forward to introducing new audiences to Oslo and drawing in visitors from a host of points,” said Tim Clark, president Emirates Airline.
Emirates’ new daily service between Dubai and Oslo is expected to strengthen the trade ties which have grown between UAE and Norway in recent years. The new daily flight to Oslo will depart Dubai as EK159 at 0700hrs* and arrives at Oslo Airport, Gardermoen at 1210hrs*. The return flight, EK160 will depart at 1355hrs* and arrives at Dubai International Airport at 2250hrs*.
This new launch will follow Kano and Abuja in Nigeria on 1 August and Chicago on 5 August.
