Emirates announced the reinstatement of its 3rd daily flight from Dubai to Rome, offering Australian travellers with more choices for flights to Dubai and beyond to over 150 destinations via its ultra-modern hub.
The additional service will be available from 26 March 2017, in conjunction with the airline’s summer schedule. On the route, Emirates will deploy a Boeing 777-300ER in a three-class configuration, equipped with eight luxurious private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class and generous space for 310 passengers in Economy Class.
From that date, Emirates will serve Rome with two daily flights operated by Boeing 777-300ER and one daily flight operated with an Emirates A380, offering a total of 1,237 seats per day to Rome and a total of 56 weekly flights from its four gateways in Italy (Rome, Milan, Bologna and Venice), giving passengers departing from the Italian Capital enhanced connectivity.
Throughout all cabins, passengers can enjoy over 2,500 channels of entertainment on demand on ice, the airline’s award-winning in-flight entertainment system. Passengers on all Emirates flights also have the added bonus of a generous baggage allowance with up to 35kgs for those travelling in Economy Class, 40kgs for Business Class and 50kgs in First Class.
Emirates’ entire fleet is now made up completely of Boeing 777s and Airbus A380s, as it recently retired the last of its Airbus A330 and A340 aircraft. An all-Boeing 777-and-A380 fleet means that the inflight entertainment offering will effectively be 100% video on demand giving customers full control and choice. Currently, 85% of Emirates’ fleet of passenger aircraft is equipped with Wi-Fi on board including all A380 aircraft. In addition, 108 aircraft are equipped with live TV, which has up to nine channels of live news and sport.
Flight EK99 will depart Dubai at 03:20 and arrive in Rome at 07:25. Flight EK100 will depart from Rome at 11:30 and arrive in Dubai at 19:20.
