Emirates to start fourth daily service to Bangkok

Extra flight gives airline the largest capacity between the Mideast and Thailand.

Dubai-based carrier Emirates Airlines will introduce a fourth daily service to Bangkok in Thailand next month.

The Middle East's largest carrier’s extra flight will begin on December 2 and is part of its Asia-Pacific expansion plans, reported the Bangkok Post.

According to the paper the fourth flight gives the airline the largest capacity between the Middle East and Thailand. The carrier currently uses four wide-bodied jets on the route, including the A380 superjumbo that can carry 488 passengers.

Emirates is also introducing a third daily service to Sydney in Australia, two extra flights to Manila in the Philippines, and one to Jakarta in Indonesia.

This will take the airline’s total number of flights throughout the Asia Pacific region to 187 a week.
