Emirates announces flight connection to Porto

Emirates has just announced that it will launch, from July 2nd 2019, a new flight operated four times a week between Porto and Dubai.

This is the second Emirates destination in Portugal, since Lisbon is already served with two daily flights.

From Dubai hub, Porto will benefit from the possibility of moving to destinations in the company's global network, especially Africa, Asia, Australia and the Middle East.

The flight between Dubai and Porto will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. EK197 departs from Dubai at 09:15 p.m., arriving in Porto at 2:30 p.m. The return flight, EK198, will depart from Porto at 5:35p.m. and land in Dubai at 4:15 a.m. the following morning.

"Porto is currently profiting from higher levels of tourism, which is reflected in the growth in the number of visitors to Portugal as a whole. Introducing this new flight, along with our two daily flights to Lisbon, will help meeting this growing demand for passengers travelling on business and leisure, as well as providing them with more options, greater flexibility and connectivity when travelling to Portugal," Tim Clark, Emirates Airline President, says.
