New frequencies come on heels of new routes into Switzerland, Denmark and Iraq
On the heels of new route into Switzerland and Denmark, Dubai’s Emirates Airline is to add fresh flights to its Austria and Germany routes as it seeks to grow its share of the competitive European market.
Four flights will be added to the airline's daily service to Vienna from 27 March while, from 1 September, Emirates' daily flight to Hamburg becomes a double daily.
"By providing these extra flights, we are responding to strong demand for additional capacity on the Vienna and Hamburg routes,” said Salem Obaidalla, Emirates' senior vice president of Commercial Operations for Europe and Russia.
“The strengthened services will foster new business and tourism to two of our key European destinations and provide even more convenient connections to onward travel through… Dubai."
The launches are the latest in a series targeting the lucrative European market. In Switzerland, Emirates will launch a new daily service to Geneva from 1 June.
On 1 August, flights will start to Copenhagen, the airline's first passenger service into Scandinavia.
Emirates has recently been embroiled in a dispute with competitor Lufthansa, which is says is limiting its flights into Germany in an attempt to shore up its own business.
This is what happens when an airline has no domestic market and excess planes thanks to unfair financial terms.
