Emirates is continuing to round its French network with expansions to Lyon and Paris Charles de Gaulle.
So we’ll start with Lyon. This service is being boosted from five flights a week to seven fights a week – enabling a daily service between Dubai and Lyon.
The service expansion starts on the 2nd August 2018.
Timetable is as follows:
EK081 DEPART 14:35 ARRIVE LYS 19:30 EK082 DEPART 21:55 ARRIVE DXB 06:15 Commences 2nd August as a daily service. Booked Equipment: Three Class Emirates Boeing 777-300ER Data: Emirates
Emirates will use a three-class 777-300ER on this route, configured with 8 First Class suites, 42 Business Class beds and 304 seats in economy class.
Meanwhile in Paris, the airline will add one extra flight a week – rounding it out to 21 flights a week (three flights a day) in both directions, with EK071/EK072 being added to Tuesday operation.
It shouldn’t be surprising – but Emirates will use a three-class A380 on this route, configured with 14 First Class suites, 76 Business Class beds and 429 seats in Economy Class.
Whilst not the biggest of network changes, they round out the connectivity from these French destinations, offering a daily service to the Dubai hub (and the obvious onward connectivity from Dubai to the rest of the Emirates and flyDubai network).
For some people – that known and daily connection can make a difference when selecting a flight between destinations.
These flights are available for booking.
