Emirates has announced that it would restore aircraft flights to Edinburgh beginning November 4, 2024. The much anticipated return to the Scottish capital would supplement the airline’s current daily A380 route to Glasgow, giving clients 14 weekly flights to and from the country.

The Emirates A350-900 aircraft will serve the Dubai-Edinburgh route in a three-class configuration, with 32 lie-flat seats in Business Class, 21 in Premium Economy, and 259 in Economy Class.
Emirates flight EK23 will depart Dubai at 14:50hrs and arrive in Edinburgh at 19:05hrs local time. The return flight, EK24, departs Edinburgh at 20:40hrs and arrives in Dubai at 08:05hrs the next day.

Customers can book flights through emirates.com, travel agents, or the Emirates Sales Office.

Return to the Highlands.

Emirates began service to Edinburgh in 2018 with a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. The airline will soon restart operations to the city using its new A350 aircraft, which have spacious cabins, high ceilings, and bespoke mood lighting.

Customers flying from Edinburgh can also access the airline’s large network of over 130 destinations via Dubai, which includes famous locations like the Maldives, Bangkok, Sydney, and Bali.

Emirates’ daily flight to Edinburgh will also increase cargo capacity, allowing Emirates SkyCargo, the airline’s cargo arm, to transport 16 tonnes of cargo per flight, thereby supporting local businesses, improving trade links with global markets, and increasing popular exports like salmon, shellfish, and whisky.

Cobbled streets, breathtaking architecture, and a thriving art scene

Edinburgh is a popular leisure and business location. The city’s Old and New Towns have both been listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites. With picturesque alleys, historic castles, and a bustling arts and culture scene, the city has something for everyone.

Visitors will be charmed by the city’s rich history, architectural wonders, and vibrant literary scene, which includes numerous galleries, museums, and musical performances.

Emirates’ A350 takes to the sky

Emirates recently announced that their new A350 aircraft will begin service in September 2024, serving nine destinations in the Middle East, GCC, West Asia, and Europe. Customers may expect more opportunities to experience the airline’s highly regarded Premium Economy cabin as well as its next-generation Business Class suites.

Edinburgh will be Emirates’ seventh destination in the United Kingdom. The world’s largest international airline operates 133 weekly flights to the UK from seven gateways, including London Heathrow, London Gatwick, London Stansted, Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle, and Glasgow, using a fleet of Emirates A380 and Boeing 777 aircraft.

Customers will also enjoy the airline’s regionally inspired gourmet meals, premium beverage selection, and award-winning inflight entertainment on ice, which includes Scottish talent with Brian Cox starring in the hit TV series Succession and Scottish director Charlotte Wells’ hit Aftersun starring Paul Mescal.
