CPH to join Emirates’ European network

Denmark will become the 67th country served by Emirates

Emirates is set to add a new European country to its route network when the Dubai-based international airline launches non-stop daily flights to Denmark on August 1. Copenhagen, which attracts 1.3 million tourists a year, will become the airline’s 112th international destination and the 27th destination in Europe. It is the third new route announced by Emirates for 2011, following Basra on February 2 and Geneva on June 1.

“Copenhagen is an important hub for the whole of Scandinavia and the launch of our non-stop service will open up a new market for Emirates. It will also offer Denmark’s businesses easy connections to previously untapped markets,” said His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, chairman and chief executive of Emirates Airline & Group.

“Dubai and Copenhagen both have a strong maritime and trading tradition and Emirates is looking forward to adding this dynamic city to our European network and also welcoming Denmark as the 67th country that we fly to from Dubai.” From August 1, EK 151, an Airbus A330-200 in a three-class configuration, will leave Dubai International Airport daily at 08:30 and arrive at CPH at 13:10. From CPH, EK 152 departs at 14:55, arriving back at DXB at 23:15.
