Emirates has announced it will resume flight operations to Edinburgh starting from 4 November 2024.

The return to the Scottish capital will complement the airline’s current A380 daily flight to Glasgow and offer customers 14 weekly flights to/from the country.

The Dubai to Edinburgh route will be served utilising the Emirates A350-900 aircraft in a three-class configuration, with 32 lie-flat seats in Business Class, 21 seats in Premium Economy and 259 seats in Economy Class.

Julie Bailey, UK Regional Sales Manager at Emirates said: “Scotland is a very important passenger and cargo destination for Emirates and we’re very proud to be back in Edinburgh – serving customers with world-class products and amenities.

“Scottish customers can look forward to an unmatched travel experience with our highly anticipated A350 aircraft; and even more travel options with 14 weekly flights to/from the country.

“We look forward to connecting Edinburgh to the world once again and to offering customers access to more than 130 global destinations via Dubai.”

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said: “We are thrilled to welcome Emirates back to Scotland’s capital and busiest airport.

“The resumption of daily flights between Edinburgh and Dubai is a huge show of confidence in our market and reaffirms our status as Scotland’s gateway to the world.

“Emirates is one of the world’s leading airlines and its return is great news for our passengers, providing direct access to Dubai and opening up fantastic connectivity to other parts of the world.

“We look forward to welcoming our partners at Emirates back to the airport in November and working together on the success of this important route.”
