Emirates has announced the reinstatement of its daily flights to Edinburgh, commencing on November 4, 2024. This move marks a significant expansion in the airline's UK operations, which already includes a daily A380 service to Glasgow. The addition of the Edinburgh route aims to meet growing market demand and enhance flexibility for travelers.

The service will operate with the Emirates A350-900, featuring a three-class configuration. This includes 32 lie-flat seats in Business Class, 21 in Premium Economy, and 259 in Economy Class. Flight EK23 will depart Dubai at 14:50 hrs, arriving in Edinburgh at 19:05 hrs local time. The return flight, EK24, will leave Edinburgh at 20:40 hrs, reaching Dubai the next morning at 08:05 hrs.

Beyond facilitating travel, the resumed service will boost cargo capacity, significantly benefiting local businesses by supporting the export of Scottish products like salmon, shellfish, and whisky. The Emirates A350 aircraft promises a luxurious experience with spacious cabins, high ceilings, and customised mood lighting, enhancing the comfort of both leisure and business travelers.

Edinburgh, renowned for its rich history and cultural heritage, offers an array of attractions. From the cobbled streets of its Old Town to the modern architecture of the New Town, the city is a UNESCO World Heritage site that draws millions of tourists yearly. Its vibrant arts scene, historic landmarks, and literary significance make it a top destination in the UK.

With the addition of this route, Emirates now connects Edinburgh to over 130 destinations worldwide through its hub in Dubai. This expansion is part of Emirates' broader strategy to increase its global footprint, providing more options for international travelers and strengthening trade and tourism links between Scotland and the rest of the world.
