Emirates has been flying to Narita since launching the route on 28th March, 2010 and will continue to use a Boeing 777-300ER on the route with eight private suites in First Class, 42 seats in Business Class and 304 Economy Class seats for a total of 354 seats; and also 23-tonnes of bellyhold cargo.

EK 318 will depart Dubai at 0250hrs, touching down at Narita International Airport at 1735hrs the same day. The return flight, EK 319 departs Narita at 2200hrs offering passengers with a convenient departure time at the end of a working day and arriving in Dubai at 0350hrs the following day. “Japan is a vital market for Emirates and being able to increase the flights to a daily operation is a great testament to the partnership which has existed since we began operations to Japan, through Osaka, nine years ago,” said Richard Jewsbury, Emirates’ Senior Vice- President, Commercial Operations, Far East & Australasia.

Jewsbury continued, “In the aftermath of the great east Japan earthquake, Emirates continued operating flights to and from Narita as normal without interruption and maintained a service for those passengers who needed to travel during that difficult time. Emirates has been committed to helping Japan through this period of recovery. We appreciate that the Japanese authorities have recognised this commitment and allowed us to operate this daily service.”
