From March 2, Emirates will offer a nonstop daily flight between Dubai and Auckland – a move Auckland Airport’s general manager Norris Carter believes will inject millions of dollars into the New Zealand economy.
“This new flight will help to significantly increase the number of people travelling between New Zealand and Europe, India and of course the Middle East. It will help to further stimulate travel, trade and tourism with these important and growing markets,” Mr Carter said in a press release.
He estimates the service will contribute “an additional $125 million every year to the New Zealand economy”.
The flight is expected to be one of the longest services on the market, taking approximately 17 hours and 15 minutes.
