I would love Emirates and Qatar to get to BOG this year. There have been many rumors of these airlines getting here, since the UAE and Qatar signed treaties with Colombia.

I would think it won't be a non-stop flight but one like DXB-GIG-EZE and back. Would improve greatly the relations between Colombia and Asia.

The only detail is Bogota's elevation. 777 have problems getting here, unless they have a stop to refuel (BCN, CCS, GRU,...?).

A large portion of EKs A380s are out of service while getting they're wings inspected.

Many routes have changed the hardware so if your flying EK just for the SJ double check if the airframe is in use that day.

Dublin sees fastest-ever expansion of Emirates service


30/01/2012 - 11:25:47

Dublin has become one of the "most successful" ever route launches for major airline Emirates.

The airline says it will increase the number of available seats on the Dublin-Dubai route by 52% from July.

A larger Boeing 777-300 aircraft will fly the service.

The decision to increase capacity comes just three weeks after the new service was launched.

This is Emirates’ fastest ever capacity expansion on a new route.

Emirates will connect Portugal to Dubai with Lisbon flight from July

Quote:
Emirates will connect Portugal to Dubai with Lisbon flight from July
Carrier's 31st European destination will be served daily by a Boeing 777-200ER


Dubai Emirates will start flights to Portugal's capital city Lisbon from July 9, the airline said in a statement.
"The airline, further extending its European reach, will start a daily service to Lisbon in the south west corner of Europe just six days after launching flights to Barcelona in neighbouring Spain," the Emirates statement said.
Emirates will serve Lisbon with a Boeing 777-200ER aircraft, offering first, business and economy class seats. Flight EK191 will leave Dubai at 9.15am each day and arrive in Lisbon at 2.45pm. The return flight, EK192, will depart Lisbon at 5.55pm and arrive at Dubai at 4.35am the next day, the statement said. The Portuguese capital becomes Emirates' 31st European destination.

"Lisbon has been on our European wish-list for some time. Our daily flight will link this far western corner of Europe with our strong route network, via Dubai, into Africa, across Asia and beyond," said Tim Clark, Emirates president.
"We will be the only carrier based in the Middle East operating into Portugal, bringing our refreshing approach to customer service, our dynamic and inspiring approach to business, along with superb value for money," Clark added.
Portugal has a population of around 10 million, of which nearly two million live in Lisbon and its suburbs. It is estimated there are some 200 million Portuguese speakers around the world, making it the third most spoken European language globally, according to Visit Portugal.
Through its international hub in Dubai, Emirates serves many of the destinations where Portuguese is spoken including Goa, Angola, Brazil and Hong Kong — gateway to the former Portuguese enclave of Macau.
Since joining the European Union in the mid-1980s, Portugal's traditional focus on an agricultural economy has become increasingly diversified, with a steady expansion of the service sector.
Connectivity
"We are delighted to welcome Emirates to Lisbon and we look forward to a long and successful partnership with our newest airline client," said Lisbon airport director Joăo Nunes.
"Emirates have established a high level of excellence and admiration within the aviation community and we are confident that passengers will be eager to take advantage of the new route for travel to the Middle East and beyond.
"Connectivity is essential for business and for tourism and this new flight and the onward connections that it will provide will be very beneficial for the Portuguese economy," Nunes added.
As one of Europe's warmest countries, Portugal is a popular tourist destination. Its better known attractions, such as the resorts of the Algarve, are supplemented by medieval castles and scenic villages dotted around winding coastlines and hillsides.
Portugal has more than 800km of Atlantic coast and is the primary point of access to the Atlantic archipelagos of the Azores and Madeira.
In Lisbon, visitors can sip an expresso on the leafy streets, go window shopping in Chiado Square, visit Jeronimos Monastery, the World Heritage Site and resting place for Vasco da Gama, or view treasured art at places such as Calouste Gulbenkian and Berardo museums.
Lisbon was recently ranked the seventh best city in Europe for shopping by the ‘Globe Shopper City Index' of The Economist Intelligence Unit.
The city also ranks eighth in the world for international conferences and events, according to the International Conferences and Congress Association (ICCA).
Cargo revenue
Mercator solution
In partnership with USA-based Revenue Technology Services (RTS), Mercator (the commercial arm of Emirates Group IT) has developed a fully integrated Cargo Revenue Management Solution which will roll out to Mercator's global customer base in this quarter of the year. The system, currently being implemented by launch customer Emirates SkyCargo, results in the Mercator SkyChain product becoming one of the world's first fully integrated cargo solutions.

QR was interested in LIS for a long time ever since it started MAD. QR has been expanding so fast recently and most of its new routes recently are in Europe (Eastern) and Africa.

QR was not only interested in LIS but also, unofficially, in TAP Portugal...

Amsterdam joins Emirates' A380 network

Emirates is to upgrade its Amsterdam service to an Airbus A380 from 1st August.


Since launching passenger flights to the Netherlands in May 2010, the route has been operated with a combination of Boeing 777-300ER and 777-200LR aircraft, arranged in a three-class configuration.

Following 18 months of strong demand, the Boeings will be replaced with the airline’s flagship Airbus A380. Spread over two decks, the remarkably quiet aircraft provides 427 seats in Economy, 76 mini-pods in Business Class and 14 First Class Private Suites – next to two Onboard Shower Spas. Available to all premium class passengers on the upper deck is a popular Onboard Lounge where travellers can exchange tales over a drink.

“To upgrade from a 777 operation to an A380 in a relatively short space of time demonstrates the strong demand from travellers to fly with Emirates and experience our superior products and services,” said Salem Obaidalla, Emirates’ senior vice president, commercial operations, Europe & Russian Federation.

“The combination of introducing our largest passenger aircraft onto the route when we already have such an established cargo track record is a formidable partnership, which will benefit tourism and trade between the Netherlands and the UAE,” Obaidalla added.

From 1st Aug, EK 147 becomes an A380 flight, leaving Dubai at 0825hrs and arriving in Amsterdam Schiphol at 1330hrs. The return double decker service, EK148, departs Amsterdam at 1530hrs and lands in Dubai at 2359hrs.

Amongst its 169 aircraft in operation, Emirates has a fleet of 20 A380s which currently serve Auckland, Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong, Jeddah, Johannesburg, Kuala Lumpur, London Heathrow, Manchester, Munich, New York JFK, Paris, Rome, Seoul, Shanghai, Sydney and Toronto. Amsterdam will become the 19th A380 point after an A380 deployment to Tokyo in July.

Initially they will use the 332, but for December, Emirates may use the 380 (in conjunction with the opening of their new first class lounge)

Emirates Airline flight to Munich 'lost all hydraulics'
by ASC Staff on Feb 23, 2012

Emirates Airline was forced to ground an Airbus A340-200 in Munich for around three hours this week, due to technical difficulties with the aircraft, it has been reported.

Crew members on a Dubai-Munich flight reported they had “lost all hydraulics” while approaching runway 26R at their destination airport, reported Aviation Herald.

“The gear was stuck down and they had no nose wheel steering requested 5 to 10 minutes at 5000 feet to work the relevant checklists,” the website stated.

“The aircraft entered a holding at 5000 feet north of the aerodrome. About 10 minutes later the crew reported they had actually lost one of the hydraulic systems and would need to stop on the runway before deciding whether they could taxi off on their own or needed a tow.”

The aircraft landed safely on the runway around 35 minutes after aborting the first approach and remained grounded for approximately three hours. It was subsequently cleared to depart on its return flight to Dubai and arrived with a total delay of one hour.
