Emirates, the flag carrier of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has become the first international airline in Thiruvananthapuram to offer First Class services to passengers. The airline is all set to introduce its First Class service in Thiruvananthapuram from February 3, 2022.
Emirates will be using its wide-body Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-cabin configuration – offering 8 seats in First Class, 42 in Business Class and 185 spacious seats in Economy Class.
“Travellers from Thiruvananthapuram can experience Emirates’ First Class product on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Emirates flight EK 523 will depart Thiruvananthapuram at 4:30hrs local time and arrive in Dubai at 7:15hrs, local time. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, Emirates flight EK 522 will depart Dubai at 21:40hrs and arrive in Thiruvananthapuram at 3:10hrs, the following day, local time,” Emirates said.
The First Class experience with Emirates is not just limited to the service that a passenger gets while in the aircraft, but also while in the airport and after exiting it. It is a great initiative from the airline and now Indian passengers will have something premium to look forward to.
