Emirates has announced its plan to launch a new daily service from Dubai to Auckland via the island of Bali, Indonesia, starting from June 14, 2018.
The new service will offer global travellers a total of three daily services to New Zealand, complementing Emirates’ existing nonstop daily service between Dubai and Auckland and its current daily Airbus A380 service between Dubai and Christchurch via Sydney. Travellers will also enjoy a choice of three daily services between Dubai to Bali in the summer*, as the new flight adds to Emirates’ two existing daily services which are currently operated by a Boeing 777 300ER in a two-class configuration.
Emirates’ new Dubai-Bali-Auckland flight will provide the only year-round nonstop daily service between Auckland and Bali, giving passengers an opportunity to visit and/or stop over in one of the most popular islands in Indonesia. The airline will operate a Boeing 777-300ER on the route, offering 8 seats in First, 42 seats in Business and 304 seats in Economy class, as well as 20 tonnes of belly-hold cargo capacity.
Flight details and connections to Emirates’ global network and beyond
Apart from the opportunity for a stopover in Bali, the new service will provide excellent connections to/from London and other major European cities. The southbound flight, EK 450, will depart Dubai at 06:55, arriving at Denpasar (Bali) at 20:20 local time, before flying on to Auckland at 22:00, arriving in New Zealand’s biggest city at 10:00, the following day.
Northbound, the new service will depart Auckland as flight EK 451 at the convenient time of 12:40, arriving in Denpasar at 17:55 local time. It will depart Denpasar at 19:50, arriving in Dubai just after midnight at 00:45, connecting to flights to many of the points beyond on the extensive Emirates and flydubai partnership network.
* Emirates will operate double daily services to DPS from 28 October 2018, in accordance with winter schedules.
