MIAMI — Today, Emirates announced that it will launch a new daily flight from Dubai (DXB) to London Stansted (STN) on June 8, 2018, becoming the first Middle Eastern carrier to operate out of the North East London airport.

Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates, shared the benefits regarding the new route: “The introduction of the new London Stansted-Dubai service underscores our commitment to serve London, with operations soon to three different airports in the city. There is a clear demand for this service from both business and leisure travelers and we anticipate that this news will be warmly received both across our global network, as well as by the business community-based in the Stansted catchment area.”

“At this crucial time, the new Emirates services will provide an important boost to the UK economy by strengthening international connectivity and offering greater choice and convenience for passengers traveling to long-haul destinations. London Stansted has seen significant capital investment and growth since its acquisition by MAG in 2013 and we’re looking forward to working with Emirates as we move forward with the next phase of development of the airport and its network of destinations,” O’Toole added.

London Stansted Airport is one of the capital’s major airport serving London and the wider regions of England’s South East and the Midlands. And this new addition will become the seventh UK airport that Emirates operates out of in the UK and there will be 10 Emirates flights daily, connecting Dubai and London.
