The airline Emirates Airline opens a new flight between Porto and Dubai (United Arab Emirates), which operates four times a week for a Boeing 777-300 ER.
The flight will be operated on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, departing from Dubai at 09:15 and arriving in Porto at 14:30, as announced by the airline at the time.
Emirates Airline president Tim Clark said that Porto is currently enjoying higher levels of tourism, which is reflected in the growth in the number of visitors to Portugal as a whole.
“The introduction of this new flight, together with our two daily flights service to Lisbon, will help meet this growing demand for both leisure and business travelers, as well as provide them with more options, greater flexibility, and connectivity while traveling for Portugal, “adds Tim Clark.
With this new flight, Emirates Airline passengers from Northern Portugal will have direct access to Emirates’ global network through Dubai, and Porto becomes the second destination of that company in Portugal, after Lisbon, where currently flies with two daily services.
