It might have just been a month since Emirates launched its Dubai – Tel Aviv route, but the airline is seeing enough demand to double the flights it will offer.

A second daily flight will operate from 30 October 2022.
The additional morning frequency is in response to the high demand for travel to/from Israel according to the airline. The second flight provides Emirates customers from Israel with additional travel options to Dubai, as well as convenient onwards connections to popular destinations, with shorter transit times.
The planned operation is as follows:
EK993 DEPART DXB 08:15 ARRIVE TLV 09:50 EK934 DEPART TLV 11:50 ARRIVE DXB 16;50 Commences 30th October 2022 Operates Daily Booked Equipment: Emirates Boeing 777-300ER (Three Class)
The service dovetails with the EK931/932 service, as well as codeshare operations with flydubai. The additional service will also provide another 20 tonnes of cargo belly-hold capacity for businesses between the two cities.
Booking on this route is now open through Emirates and its partners.
Further growth for Emirates
It seems that Emirates is doing well enough to throw another 427 seats a day at Tel Aviv – adding an extra 2989 seats of capacity on the route per week.
For passengers connecting through Dubai, it will offer more options.
Meanwhile, local carrier El Al will have to balance what it wants next and the impact of up to 3000 a week choosing another airline.
It’s going to be interesting to see what happens next in Tel Aviv.
