Emirates adds flights again for Dubai-Kuala Lumpur
EMIRATES increased its number of services between Dubai and Kuala Lumpur from 26 to 28 weekly flights on April 1, its fourth frequency increase in four years. The airline has introduced another 1,659 seats per week through two new flight timings, levelling the schedule to four daily flights on the route.
From Dubai, the new flight leaves at 21.35 on Saturdays and Sundays and arrives in Kuala Lumpur at 08.55 the next day, while the return flight takes off from Kuala Lumpur at 10.30 on Mondays and Fridays to reach Dubai at 13.10 the same day.
The sector has faced strong demand in the last few years, resulting in frequency adjustments. As recent as November 2012, Emirates had 21 flights a week, up from 14 weekly flights in 2009. On February 7, the carrier increased its number of services from 25 times a week to 26.
