Sky’s the limit for Perth travellers with faster European and USA connections

October 14, 2014 Aviation No Comments Email Email

Emirates’ afternoon flight from Perth to Dubai is moving to a later departure time, providing passengers on this flight with quicker onward connections to many of Emirates destinations across Europe and the United States.

As of 27 October, EK423 one of Emirates’ three daily flights from Perth to Dubai, moves from a departure time of 3.10pm to an early evening departure of 5.50pm, shortening the stop-over times for Western Australian travellers in Dubai to some onward destinations.

Emirates Regional Manager WA Darren Tyrrell said the changed flight time demonstrates Emirates’ commitment to providing Western Australians with a seamless travel experience.

“Flying to Europe via Dubai already shaves up to three hours off more traditional routes via Asia and this shift in our afternoon flight means even shorter stopover times on this daily flight. Western Australian travellers choosing to depart late afternoon now have the chance to arrive at their final destinations even quicker than before,” Mr Tyrrell said.

The connection to EK007 to London Heathrow for example now has a stopover of just under 140 minutes, while those travelling on EK423 and onward to Milan will also benefit from a decrease in wait times, with the first flight to Milan departing 3:40 am; equating to a stopover just shy of three hours.

Other destinations with improved connections due to the later flight departure include Rome, Paris, Frankfurt, Manchester in Europe and Dallas and Washington in the United States.

Emirates also operates two other daily flights from Perth to Dubai – EK425 departing at 6am and EK421 departing at 10.20pm. Both these flights also offer West Australians convenient connections to Emirates network of 35 destinations in Europe and expanding network in the United States.

Those looking to travel to Europe in 2015 can also now take advantage of Early Bird specials with prices from Perth starting from $1,521.
