Emirates Returns to Edinburgh with a daily A350 Service

DALLAS — Emirates (EK) has announced that it will resume flight operations to Edinburgh starting from November 4, 2024. This will complement the airline's current A380 daily flight to Glasgow and offer customers 14 weekly flights to and from Scotland.

The daily Dubai (DXB) to Edinburgh (EDI) route will be served by the carrier's new A350-900 aircraft in a three-class configuration. The aircraft will have 32 lie-flat seats in Business Class, 21 seats in Premium Economy, and 259 seats in Economy Class. EK first launched operations to EDI in 2018 using a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

The flight from Dubai to Edinburgh, EK23, will depart at 14:50hrs and arrive in Edinburgh at 19:05hrs local time. The return flight, EK24, will depart Edinburgh at 20:40hrs and arrive in Dubai at 08:05hrs the following day.

Passengers traveling from Edinburgh will also have access to EK's extensive network of over 130 destinations via Dubai, including popular destinations such as the Maldives, Bangkok, Sydney, and Bali.

Emirates' daily flight to Edinburgh will also boost cargo capacity and enable Emirates SkyCargo, the airline's cargo arm, to transport 16 tonnes of cargo per flight. This will support local businesses, improve trade links with global markets, and increase exports such as salmon, shellfish, and whisky.
