Emirates’ Presence in the UK

For the airline’s passenger and freight operations, STN continues to be an important hub. Customers in East and Southeast UK will now have additional options, flexibility, and convenience when flying with Emirates to more than 130 destinations via Dubai thanks to the daily service.

Emirates presently flies into seven UK gateways. The airline will operate 110 weekly flights by October 2022 to serve the nation, including six daily flights to London Heathrow, daily flights to London Stansted, twice-daily A380 flights to Gatwick, three daily flights to Manchester, including a double-daily A380 service (starting October 1, 2022), twice-daily flights to Birmingham, five weekly flights to Newcastle, and daily flights to Glasgow.

Up until August 3, 2022, the airline will continue to offer three daily flights to LGW. The increased frequency will accommodate passengers impacted by capacity changes on flights departing from London Heathrow as well as meet consumer demand.
