Emirates will begin daily, direct flights to Clark International Airport, its second destination in the Philippines, from October 1 this year.
The airline has been operating flights to Manila since 1990 and currently offers a triple daily, non-stop service.
Clark International Airport is located in the province of Pampanga in Central Luzon, which is 80 km north of Manila. It has a catchment area of 17m people.
“There has always been a growing demand for Emirates’ services since we connected Manila with Dubai and our constantly expanding network on six continents,” said Tim Clark, president, Emirates Airline.
Operated by a two-class Boeing 777-300ER, EK338 will depart Dubai at 04:00 and arrive at Clark International Airport at 16:40.
The return flight EK339 will depart at 18.35 and arrive at Dubai International Airport at 23:05.
