DHAKA: Emirates has touched down in Lyon, celebrating the international airline’s third destination in France and fourth new European destination since the start of 2012.
Five weekly flights will be operated between Dubai and Lyon on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
Serviced by an Airbus 340-500 in three cabin classes, Emirates’ flights to Lyon will offer a total of 258 seats including; 12 First Class Suites, 42 seats in Business Class and 204 seats in Economy Class.
The addition of this new Emirates service will see an overall capacity increase of 12 percent in France, further boosting the airline’s presence in this important international market.
Feeding the under serviced Lyon region, Emirates is the first international carrier to provide direct services from Lyon to Dubai as well as key commercial hubs in the East, an important link for facilitating new trade opportunities.
Emirates passengers in Lyon will also benefit from the airline’s recently launched frequent flyer partnership with easyJet that allows Skywards Miles to be redeemed for flights on easyJet across Europe.
Emirates SkyCargo will now have a weekly capacity of more than 1000 tonnes spread across the belly-hold of 31 return passenger flights serving Paris, Nice and Lyon.
Emirates passengers travelling in both directions will benefit from the airline’s generous baggage allowance of 50kg in First Class, 40kg in Business Class and 30kg in Economy Class.
Passengers will also enjoy the on-board ice system with over 500 channels of on-demand entertainment in all classes.
