According to a report by Wego, Emirates has declared its intention to enhance its operations in Australia. Starting from October 1, the airline will upgrade its second daily flight, EK430/431, between Dubai and Brisbane to an A380.

Additionally, a new daily service between Dubai and Perth will be introduced, operated by a Boeing 777-300ER, beginning on December 1.

Commencing October 1, the schedule for Dubai – Brisbane route will be:

Dubai (depart 02.30) – Brisbane (arrive 22.20)*

Brisbane (depart 01.55) – Dubai (arrive 10.05)*

Commencing December 1, the schedule for Dubai – Perth route will be:

Dubai (depart 09.15) – Perth (arrive 00.05)*

Perth (depart 06.00) – Dubai (arrive 13.10)*

*all local times

These operational enhancements will result in an additional 6,900 seats per week, meeting the growing demand for international travel via Dubai and connecting to Emirates’ global network of over 140 destinations. The increased capacity will also facilitate air connectivity for imports and exports, benefiting Australian businesses. The second daily flight to Perth will offer improved connectivity to Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

The boost in seat capacity from the double daily A380 services to Brisbane will benefit passengers traveling to popular destinations, including the UK, Italy, France, Turkey, Pakistan, and Egypt.
