Emirates will launch eight flights a week to Bangalore, offering a total weekly capacity of 2,108 seats and 120 plus tonnes of cargo in each direction.

To Bangalore, the Dubai-based international airline will operate some of the world’s most technologically advanced aircraft — the modern Airbus A330-200 and the larger capacity Boeing 777-200 — in a three class configuration, designed to offer high standards of comfort, luxury and style.

The capital city of Karnataka in Bangalore will be Emirates’ fifth destination in South India, the others being Chennai, Hyderabad, Cochin and Thiruvananthapuram. It will also be the 86th destination on Emirates’ rapidly expanding network, which includes the start of services to nine new destinations in 2006.

“I thank the Indian Government and Ministry of Civil Aviation for opening up the Indian skies and giving international airlines such as Emirates an opportunity to commence services to a host of new destinations. By the end of this year, Emirates would have launched services to Thiruvananthapuram, Kolkata and Bangalore and strengthened its presence in the country to eight cities served by 71 flights,” said Shaikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman, Emirates Group.
