Emirates upgrades Manchester evening service.

Emirates has announced the upgrade of its evening service from Manchester from a two class Boeing 777-300ER to a three class Boeing 777-300ER, the service started on 1 September 2012. The 358 seat aircraft increases the seat offering by Emirates to and from Manchester to 2,474 across the three daily services. The morning service from Manchester was upgraded to a three class Boeing 777-300ER on 1st August 2012, which means all three daily flights out of Manchester now offer First Class.

Emirates has identified Manchester as an important hub in the UK and this announcement supports the continued commitment and investment by the airline in the North West of England.

Chief Commercial Officer for M.A.G, Ken O’Toole, said: “Emirates services from Manchester Airport are one of our great success stories for business and leisure travel to the Middle East and beyond which is why we welcome the introduction of First Class to its evening service. For passengers, this creates an onboard product portfolio consistent with the ever-popular A380 and we look forward to working with Emirates to further develop its Manchester operation.”

The first Emirates route from Manchester commenced in November 1990. In March 1999, the route became daily and a second daily was introduced on the route in June 2003. A Boeing 777-300ER replaced an A330-200 in October 2005 and an Airbus A380 commenced a lunchtime service from September 2010. A third daily service was then launched from May 2011 with an Airbus A330.
