Emirates sets date for return to London Gatwick

Emirates will restart flights from London Gatwick from December 10 in response to rising demand.

A daily flight will be operated by B777 aircraft.

Flight EK016 will depart Gatwick at 1335 and arrive in Dubai at 0040 the following day local time. Flight EK015 will leave Dubai at 0740 and arrive in Gatwick at 1140.

The addition means Emirates will restore its UK operations to six gateways, alongside a six times daily A380 London Heathrow service, double daily A380 flights to Manchester, 10 weekly service to Birmingham, daily service to Glasgow, and four weekly service to Newcastle.

Adnan Kazim, Emirates Chief Commercial Officer, said: “With the UK simplifying travel and accepting international vaccination certificates, we’ve seen a big surge in demand as people have been a lot more confident in booking trips for the coming months and further ahead, be it for business, a winter sun escape or to visit family and friends.

“Gatwick has long been a valued partner for Emirates and we look forward to welcoming passengers back on board an Emirates flight soon.”
