Emirates to make highly anticipated return to Adelaide in October 2024

We're pleased to share this exciting news from our partner's at Emirates. 


Emirates have taken the final step in the restoration of their Australia capacity announcing their return to Adelaide. A daily service will relaunch between the South Australia capital and their Dubai hub on 28 October 2024.

The reinstated service will facilitate the growing travel demand to and from South Australia and allow passengers to travel conveniently between more than 130 destinations across Emirates global network, offering a wide range of choice, flexibility, and connectivity.

Operating daily with the Boeing 777-200LR aircraft with 38 Business Class seats alongside 264 seats in Economy Class, the Adelaide service will offer 302 seats per flight and over 4,200 weekly seats between Dubai and Adelaide. The business Class cabin on the Adelaide service will feature a 2-2-2 configuration.


Emirates currently serves Australia with 63 weekly flights to Brisbane, Perth, Sydney, and Melbourne, operated by a mix of A380 and Boeing 777 aircraft transporting 56,000 passengers per week to and from these major cities. From 1 October, their second service between Dubai and Brisbane will be upgraded to an A380, creating an all A380 operation from the Queensland capital. From 1 December, they will reinstate their second Perth service on a Boeing 777-300ER, joining the existing A380 service.
