Operated by a Boeing 777-300ER, the daily service will offer three cabin classes with eight seats in First Class, 42 seats in Business Class and 310 seats in Economy Class. Emirates’ customers in Norway will enjoy the convenience of a non-stop connection to Dubai, one of the world’s most exciting destinations for business and tourism, and convenient onward flight schedules to reach over 21 passenger destinations in the Far East and Australasia, 15 destinations in West Asia, 3 destinations in the Indian Ocean and 10 destinations in the Middle East. Among the most popular destinations for Norwegians include Bangkok, Phuket, Singapore, Manila, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong. Customers will also be able to experience the Emirates’ flagship A380, connecting to 11 destinations in the Far East, Australasia and Indian Ocean.

“Norway’s resilient economy is built on strong foundations including its dynamic oil, gas, fishing, telecom and maritime sectors. We believe that Emirates’ new Oslo service will stimulate further growth via trade, tourism and investment flows into the country, by providing critical air transport links with emerging markets in the Middle East, Far East, West Asia and Africa. We also look forward to introducing new audiences to Oslo and drawing in visitors from a host of points across the global network including the UAE and destinations further East such as India, Pakistan, Thailand, China and Vietnam,” said Tim Clark, President Emirates airline.

Oslo ranks as the fastest-growing capital in Europe, and is home to diverse ethnic communities from Pakistan, Iraq, the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, India, Afghanistan and China.
