DUBAI – Emirates now operates daily, non-stop services between Dubai and Zurich, a schedule change that has also increased capacity to Istanbul.
Previously, three of the six weekly flights to Zurich were routed via Istanbul. Now, the Turkish city has four non-stop flights a week, with flights returning to Dubai shortly after midnight.
Seating capacity has increased on the Zurich route due to the deployment of the bigger Airbus A330-200, offering 34 seats in business class and 251 in economy.
