Emirates Expands Seoul Operations with 3 Additional Weekly Flights

 Emirates, the world’s largest international airline, is reinforcing its commitment to South Korea with a significant increase in operations to Seoul. Starting from February 19th, 2024, the airline will introduce three additional weekly flights, enhancing connectivity and catering to growing demand in the region.

Operating as EK324/EK325 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, the new flights will be serviced by a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. Departing from Dubai at 0445hrs, flight EK324 will arrive at Seoul Incheon International Airport at 1805hrs. The return flight, EK325, will depart Seoul at 2200hrs and land in Dubai at 0315hrs the following day.

Emirates’ expansion in Seoul translates to an increase of over 1,000 additional seats per week, contributing to meeting the demand for international travel to this popular East Asian destination. This move aims to support South Korea’s inbound and outbound tourism, aligning with the strong bilateral relations between the UAE and Korea.

In addition to passenger services, the three weekly Boeing 777 flights will provide an extra 45 tonnes of cargo capacity between Dubai and Seoul. This boost in trade connectivity is anticipated to strengthen economic ties between South Korea and the UAE, fostering convenient air connectivity for imports and exports.

Emirates initiated services to Seoul in 2005 and currently operates a daily Airbus A380 service from Dubai. With the introduction of these additional flights, the airline will serve Seoul with a total of 10 weekly flights, featuring a combination of the Airbus A380 and Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. This expanded service ensures greater flexibility and choice for passengers traveling to and from Dubai, as well as seamless connections to over 130 global destinations in Emirates’ network.

Travellers flying with Emirates can anticipate an exceptional onboard experience, highlighted by an unparalleled culinary journey featuring regionally inspired multi-course menus crafted by award-winning chefs. The airline’s inflight entertainment system, ice, offers up to 6,500 channels of carefully curated global content, including Korean movies, TV shows, music, and more.

Emirates’ strategic expansion not only addresses current travel demands but also positions the airline as a key player in enhancing air connectivity between the UAE and South Korea, fostering economic growth and cultural exchange.
