Emirates has announced it will commence a four-times weekly service between Dubai and Portugal’s second largest city, Porto, from 02 July 2019.
Porto will become Emirates’ second destination in Portugal after its capital, Lisbon, which the airline currently serves with two flights a day.
“This will be a popular option for the premium leisure crowd”, said The Travel Authority Group’s Managing Director, Peter Hosper.
“We’re seeing growth in bookings to Portugal. These one-stop services will bring Porto and destinations along Portugal’s northern coast into focus for many Australian travellers, especially with the great value launch fares”, added Hosper.
Economy Class fares from Sydney start from AU$1739 per person
Business Class fares from Sydney start from AU$7935 per person
ON SALE until 28 February 2019 only. Valid for travel between 01 July and 12 December 2019.
Advance purchase requirements apply. One free stopover permitted in Dubai in each direction.
Porto services will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three class cabin configuration, offering eight private First Class suites, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class, and 310 in Economy Class.
The flight between Dubai and Porto will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, departing Dubai as EK197 at 09:15am, arriving in Porto at 14:30.
The return service, EK198, departs Porto at 17:35, landing in Dubai at 04:15am the following morning. The schedule provides convenient connections to Emirates’ flights to both Melbourne and Sydney.
“Porto is currently enjoying increased levels of tourism, which is also reflective of the growth in the number of visitors to Portugal as a whole. The introduction of this new flight, along with our twice daily Lisbon service, will help meet this growing demand from both leisure and business travellers, as well as provide them with more choice, flexibility and connectivity when travelling to and from Portugal,” said Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline.
