Starting September 11, Emirates will resume its flight services to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Further, from October 8, the airline will also resume flying to St Petersburg. With the resumption of flight services to these two international destinations, Emirates is looking to grow its global footprint. It will also help the airline in the recovery of the international travel demand. Dubai is one of the hottest destinations for Russians because of both the weather and the world-class hotels that fit within every budget.
Emirates Will Fly to St Petersburg from Dubai Four Times a Week From October 8
Emirates said, “From 8 October, flights between Dubai and St Petersburg will operate four times a week, and the airline will increase its services to daily flights from 21 October. All flights will operate on the Boeing 777-300ER in a three-class configuration.”
“Emirates flight EK 173 and 174 will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, while EK 175 and 176 will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays,” the airline added.
The timings of the flights have also been decided. The flight EK 173 will depart from Dubai at 09:10 hours and arrive at St Petersburg Pulkovo Airport at 14:15 hours. The timings of the other flights have also been updated by the airline and the same can be checked on the website.
In other news, Emirates has been offering special fares to Indians for international travel. Indians can book flights for special rates if they book their tickets between September 6 and September 19, 2021.
The travel period could be between September 6, 2021, and March 31, 2021. The special fares have already been announced by the airline for the Indians.
