Airline resumes second daily service to the city 

DUBAI, U.A.E., 20 February, 2018 –   Emirates today announced it will resume a second daily service to Portugal’s capital, Lisbon, from 1 June 2018.
The flight will be operated by an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER in a three class cabin configuration, with eight private suites in First Class, 42 seats in Business Class, and 310 spacious seats in Economy Class.

Portugal boasts a warm temperate climate and a long coastline of beaches, scenic villages and a rich culture and history, attracting visitors from all over the world. According to Turismo de Portugal, a record 21 million people visited the country in 2017, an increase of 10 percent when compared to the previous year, while Lisbon recorded a 16 percent increase.

“Portugal is experiencing an upturn in its economy and strong tourism growth. The second daily service between Dubai and Lisbon will therefore meet growing demand for seats on the route, as well as offer our customers in Portugal and from across Emirates’ worldwide network more choice and flexibility when planning their travel,” said Hubert Frach, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, West. 

More connectivity

The second flight, EK193, will depart Dubai at 1425hrs and arrive in Lisbon at 1940hrs, while the return flight EK194, will leave Lisbon at 2115hrs and land in Dubai at 0805 the next morning. Emirates’current flight, EK191, departs Dubai at 0725hrs and arrives in Lisbon at 1235pm. The return flight EK192, departs Lisbon at 1415pm and arrives back in Dubai 0110pm.

With the choice of two conveniently timed flights a day, travellers will enjoy seamless and increased connectivity through Emirates’ Dubai hub to key destinations across the airline’s worldwide network, including Australia, Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Luanda, Thailand and Johannesburg.

Customers travelling from Lisbon can also access over 90 destinations under the Emirates and flydubai network partnership with seamless connections through Dubai, especially for flights to and from destinations such as Kathmandu, Zanzibar, Kilimanjaro, Sylhet and Chittagong.

Care and comfort

Named the Best Airline in the World by TripAdvisor in 2017, customers can look forward to the highest levels of care and comfort, from the warm hospitality of Emirates’ multinational cabin crew, including Portuguese nationals, to being entertained by ice, which offers up to 3000 channels of on demand audio and visual entertainment from the latest movies, music and games. Customers also enjoy chef prepared meals and complimentary beverages, while families are also well catered for with dedicated products and services for children.

The added frequency will also enable Emirates SkyCargo to offer up to 20 tonnes of cargo capacity on the aircraft per flight, giving businesses and traders opportunities for increased imports and exports.
