CHENNAI: Emirates Airline on Wednesday announced the launch of a new daily service between Chennai and Dubai and an expansion of its India operations.

The new service from Chennai, which started operating on October 28, leaves Chennai at 3.30 a.m. and reaches Dubai at 6.20 a.m. local time.

It is in addition to the daily morning service which leaves Chennai at 9.40 a.m.

“The new service will make it easier for Chennai passengers to connect to flights out of Dubai,” Orhan Abbas, vice-president (India and Nepal), Emirates Airline, said. Tickets will be available at a promotional fare (return) of Rs. 12,150 for the economy class until November 30 (taxes apply for all fares).

The airline has expanded its India operations, adding 22 additional services. It now operates 98 flights every week to nine destinations in India. Three additional services have been introduced in Hyderabad and Kochi, and the airline will operate four flights a day from Mumbai. Ahmedabad has also been added to the list of its destinations.

Mr. Abbas said India was one of the airline’s “biggest growing markets,” both for passenger and freight traffic. It operates with a load factor of 80-85 per cent on its India flights throughout the year. The West Asia and Indian Ocean market accounts for 18.6 per cent of its global passenger traffic, as well as 8.9 per cent of its global revenues.

Internationally, Emirates has launched new services to Sao Paulo, Brazil, Toronto, Canada and Houston, the United States (from December 3), with special deals exclusively for Chennai travellers available until February 15. The fare will be Rs. 49,995 to Sao Paulo and Rs. 39,995 to Toronto and Houston.
