Emirates to double daily services to Brisbane from June 2023

16 January 2023

One of the world’s largest airlines, Emirate will double its daily flights from Dubai to Brisbane from June 2023.

The additional service was assisted by the $200 million State Government and aviation industry partnership -- Attracting Aviation Investment Fund.

Emirates’ decision is another clear indicator that international travel is back on the global agenda and Queensland is very much in the sights of overseas visitors.

This is the 11th AAIF deal struck and it is estimated to bring in an additional 129,210 seats, including an estimated 38,610 visitors to the state and generate overnight visitor expenditure of $75 million a year.

The extra service is also estimated to provide an additional 730 direct and indirect jobs for the state.

The Boeing 777-300 can carry up to 354 passengers and is in addition to the existing A380 daily service.

Emirates has an extensive worldwide network to more than 130 destinations ensuring a high level of connectivity with the UK, Europe, Scandinavia, Africa and North America.

Importantly for exporting Queensland agricultural produce, this service has the capacity to provide up to 22 tonnes of freight capacity to Dubai and beyond each flight.
