The growing network of Emirates continues to evolve with the announcement of a service to connect Dubai to the Brussels.
The timetable looks like this:
EK183 DEPART DXB 07:50 ARRIVE BRU 13:15 EK184 DEPART BRU 14:45 ARRIVE DXB 23:25 Commences 5th September 2014 Booked Equipment: Boeing 777-200LR
Timings into Brussels should allow time for an afternoon meeting, whilst the return leg to Dubai will allow connections to Emirates worldwide network as needed.
Emirates will operate one of their lower capacity Boeing 777’s – a 777-200LR on this route. This offers a three class product:
- 8 First Seats in 1-2-1 formation
- 42 Business Class Seats in 2-3-2 formation
- 216 Economy Class Seats in 3-4-3 formation
Emirates will have some competition to the area as Etihad have been operating in and out of Brussels for some time with their 8 flights a week between Brussels and Abu Dhabi. Qatar Airways also operate services to Brussels National too.
Emirates will one-up Etihad in offering a three class service over the two class service operated by an Etihad Airbus A330-200.
Still, for those who live in Brussels, and don’t fancy the trip over to Paris or a German airport to fly Emirates, this gives an extra option for you to consider.
