The ability of Emirates to move people in and out of the north of England continues to astound

 


Emirates Airline will add more than 2,000 seats a week to and from Newcastle when it introduces a 428-seat Boeing 777-300ER, which will replace a 278-seat Airbus A330-200 on the route – a capacity increase of more than 50%.

 

“Our Newcastle service has come of age and with demand continuing to increase, this is the right time for Emirates to be expanding its capacity from the North East,” said Laurie Berryman, Emirates’ Vice President, UK. “With the introduction of this larger aircraft, we will offer almost 6,000 seats every week to and from Newcastle.”

 

Emirates’ key destinations for North East UK travellers include Dubai, Bangkok, Sydney, Perth, Beijing, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Mauritius. Since the route was launched, Emirates has carried more than 10 million kilos of cargo on its Newcastle service, helping companies across the region to export their goods across the globe. Popular commodities being shipped include oil rig equipment, car parts, personal effects and pharmaceuticals.  The arrival of the larger aircraft will mean an increase in cargo carrying capacity of some 22% to over 16,000 kilos per flight.
