Way to go, Emirates. Expect nothing less than atleast a daily A330 service.
I'm sure it will do well. However I wonder how this will effect loads to Vienna, as I understand the VIE flights captured feed from Prague.
Here's hoping Copenhagen and Madrid/Lisbon come on board next.

Quoting LondonCity (Reply 15): But you could make the same claim regarding PRG which is more of a leisure than a business destination.
Not anymore. The Czech Republic has attracted a lot of companies the last 2 years because it's cheaper then Western Europe. I work now for a company that closed in AMS and is based in BRQ now. And since it's a worldwide multinational we have loads of business traffic to the US / UK and Asia
Quoting Flying Belgian (Reply 9): They still miss MAD, BCN, ARN, CPH, OSL, BRU, GVA as major Europeans gateways.
Much of EK's growth is dependent on bilateral rights. I'm under the impression the Swiss rights are maxed out (in terms of frequency). Is that correct? Or could EK fly to GVA as soon as an aircraft is available?
MAD and BCN probably wait on improvement in the Spanish economy.
ARN, CPH, and OSL would be dependent upon bilateral rights?

Quoting Shamrock321 (Reply 20): With EY increasing DUB to 10 weekly they have proved there is sufficent demand from DUB to the middle east and onwards, whats the chances ok EK coming to DUB?
I really think EK has just missed the boat on this one; they had their chance and blew it; EY got in and built up the market and now with the service going to 10 weekly, it's hard to see EK going in, especially when there are still other markets left to develop. Of course, one can't rule it out long term, especially as the Irish economy recovers, but I think EK will just have to chalk it up to experience. DUB could have been theirs and they just let it slip away.
Still, good news for PRG.
25 KL911: Don't think so. OK has no business what so ever in the gulf. It might even benefit from a codeshare with EK.
26 AirIndia: I guess you are correct. rights have maxed out. IAD? ORD? MIA? ORD has an offline sales office. Most definitely these two should be next. what about
27 MillwallSean: Well I think you are pretty much of base with that assumption. EK has been to all three airports. When Emirates enters Scandinavia is another questio
28 EBGflyer: According to the CPH website the following non-stop unserviced destinations are as follows (pr. 1. jan 2009): The number covers pax that were traveli
29 AirIndia: interesting that DEL is the busiest asian sector out of CPH. Whos got that share? LH? Now thats a lot of potential traffic for EK to ferry to DXB and
30 Abrelosojos: = Or, WRO . Saludos and congrats to EK, A.
31 EBGflyer: Busiest unserved nonstop, yes. I don't know the numbers for the direct flights from CPH to PEK, BKK, SIN, NRT. Lot of potential pax for EK, yes!
32 AirIndia: yes unserved nonstop, but i thought the figures given earlier were CPH-DEL through booked figures.................
33 EBGflyer: They are. But among them you wouldn't find BKK, PEK, SIN, NRT as they are served nonstop routes, which means DEL probably wouldn't make it as the bus
