The service was to be launched in June next year.

Dubai's Emirates airline has changed the date of its fourth flight launch to Bangladesh capital, Dhaka.

In a brief statement tweeted on Wednesday, Emirates said that it would be launching its fourth daily service to Dhaka on March 29, 2020 instead of June 1, 2020 - as announce earlier.

In a statement issued in November, Emirates announced that it was adding a fourth daily service to Dhaka from June 1, 2020, to cater to Bangladesh's growing economy and the country's large diaspora who work and live in the Middle East, Europe and the US.

The new service will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER in a two-class configuration, featuring 42 Business Class and 310 Economy Class seats, and belly-hold cargo capacity of up to 20 tonnes.

Adnan Kazim, Emirates' Chief Commercial Officer, said: "Emirates shares a special bond with Bangladesh that goes back 33 years. With this service, the large diaspora of Bangladeshis, especially in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman, UK, USA and Italy will benefit from a more varied and flexible schedule, as well as smooth and seamless connectivity from Dubai."

The service will be carefully timed to create convenient connections to popular cities, including London, Rome, Frankfurt, Porto, New York, Washington, DC, Mexico City, Johannesburg and Cape Town.
