Emirates (Dubai) has announced plans to offer a double daily service to Barcelona, less than three years after its initial launch to the city.
From May 2, 2015 Emirates will add a further 3724 seats per week to Barcelona increasing overall capacity by 51 percent. The extra service will be operated by a Boeing 777-200 LR in a three class configuration, complementing the airline’s already successful daily Airbus A380 service.
Flight EK 188 will depart Dubai at 1545 and arrive at Barcelona El Prat Airport at 2100. Flight EK 189 will take off daily from Barcelona at 2245 and land in Dubai at 0725 the following day.
In addition to Barcelona, Emirates also operates a double daily service to Madrid. Emirates first launched flights to Spain in 2010 and now offers a total of 21,042 seats per week to and from the country.
