Dubai-based Emirates Airline will start a daily service to Stockholm from September 4.

The carrier will operate the route with a 354-seat Boeing 777-300ER in a three-class configuration and offer passengers from the Swedish capital access to more than 40 destinations across West Asia, the Far East and Australasia.

Emirates SkyCargo will also offer 19 tonnes of cargo capacity between Dubai and Stockholm.

“Following our successful launch into Copenhagen, Denmark in 2011, we have been closely evaluating options for further expansion in Scandinavia,” said Tim Clark, president, Emirates.

“Sweden, with its stable and growing economy, is perfect location to extend our regional presence.”

Emirates flights will depart Dubai at EK157 at 07:15 and arrive at Stockholm Arlanda Airport at 12:00 local time. Return flight EK158 will leave Stockholm at 13:55 and land at Dubai International Airport at 22:25.

Bilateral trade between the UAE and Sweden reached more than $896m in 2012, an increase of 4.3 percent compared to the previous year.

Emirates, the world’s largest airline by international passenger traffic, currently services about 130 destinations worldwide via its fleet of 191 aircraft.
