Emirates Ramps Up Seoul Flights
This increase in services by Emirates will raise the capacity of Dubai-Seoul flights by over 1,000 additional seats per week.
It aims to address the pent-up demand for international travel to one of East Asia’s most popular destinations, supporting both inbound and outbound tourism in South Korea.
The intensified operations align with the strong bilateral relations between the UAE and Korea, reflecting the need for increased flights between the two nations.
Emirates is set to enhance cargo capacity by 45 tonnes weekly between Dubai and Seoul through its three additional Boeing 777 flights. This move aims to strengthen trade and economic bonds between South Korea and the UAE, extending the impact to global destinations within the Emirates’ network via Dubai.
The initiative is expected to contribute significantly to Korea’s economy, facilitating seamless air connectivity for the Republic’s imports and exports.
