Emirates to add Porto flights in July

Emirates to add Porto flights in July

Emirates is to launch a four times weekly service between Portugal’s second largest city, Porto, and Dubai from 2 July. The flight will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, departing Dubai on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 0915 and arriving in Porto at 1430. The return flight will depart Porto at 1735 on the same days and land in Dubai at 0415 the next morning.

It will offer up to 18 tonnes of cargo capacity per flight, giving local businesses the opportunity to increase their exports such as garments, shoes, automotive parts and cork.

Connections will be available at Dubai International Airport to destinations such as Luanda, Johannesburg, Bangkok, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Melbourne and Sydney.

Porto will be the carrier’s second destination in Portugal; it currently serves Lisbon twice a day.
