Emirates starts Non-Stop Operations from Dubai to Auckland
Emirates will start its first non-stop service from Dubai to Auckland on 1st March 2016, bringing you to New Zealand with a flight time of just 25 hours, 15 minutes from Dubai to New Zealand and 26 hours, 30 minutes in the other direction, cutting journey times by 2 hours, 30 minutes to Auckland and 3 hours, 10 minutes on the way back to Vienna.
The new service will be in addition to the existing flights, meaning that Emirates will then have five daily services to New Zealand – three A380 double-decker services to Auckland via Australia, a daily Christchurch service with a Boeing 777-300ER, and the new non-stop service operated with a Boeing 777-200LR.
Having just one stop on the long haul to New Zealand will make your journey quicker and more comfortable. Like Emirates’ other New Zealand flights, the aircraft will offer three cabin classes: eight First Class suites, 42 lie-flat Business Class seats and 216 comfortable Economy Class seats.
The flights will feature Emirates’ gourmet meals and fine wines, and more than 2,000 channels of entertainment and information will be available on large, individual screens. Passengers will have the airline’s usual generous free baggage allowances – 30kg for Economy Class, 40kg for Business Class, and 50kg for First Class.
Emirates passengers who booked their flight on existing services to Auckland 28th January 2016 for travel between 1st March and 30th November 2016 will be able to switch to the new service without additional fees (subject to seat availability).
