Emirates has confirmed a second daily flight to Lisbon starting from January 1st 2016, thus reinforcing the connection of Australasian passengers, from East and West Asia and also South Africa to the Portuguese capital.

The flight leaves Dubai daily at 02:40pm and arrives in Lisbon at 07:20pm. The return flight will depart from Lisbon at 09:00pm, landing in Dubai at 08:45am of the following day.

Hubert Frach, Divisional Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations West Emirates, states that "over the last three years, our flights to Lisbon registered a progressive growth, both in terms of passengers and freight. There is clearly a need for a second daily flight to meet this demand."

Currently, Emirates is the only company in the Middle East which has a daily flight to Lisbon, which facilitates and promotes commercial trade.

The new flight will be ensured by a Boeing 777 with eight suites in First Class, 42 reclining seats in Business Class and 310 seats in Economy Class.
