EK finally announce DUB  http://www.emirates.com/ie/english/a...etail.aspx?article=711393&offset=0

http://www.dublinairport.com/gns/at-...New_Emirates_Service_To_Dubai.aspx



Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) welcomes today’s announcement from Emirates Airline that it will begin a new daily Dublin-Dubai service from January.

The new long-haul service, which will operate from Terminal 2, will expand Dublin Airport’s direct links to the Middle East and its onward connections into India, Africa, South East Asia, Australasia and China.

“We are delighted to welcome Emirates to Dublin and we look forward to a long and successful partnership with our newest customer,” said DAA Chief Executive Declan Collier.

Emirates, which already has a significant route network in Europe, had looked at Dublin previously, but the additional long-haul capacity provided by new boarding gates delivered as part of the Terminal 2 project played a key role in convincing them to invest in Dublin on this occasion.

“The improvements in Dublin Airport’s facilities in recent years, including the opening of Terminal 2, and our new long-haul gates in Pier E, was a major factor in winning this new service for Ireland,” Mr Collier added. “We have been in talks with Emirates for several years about a possible Dublin-Dubai service and our perseverance has paid off.”

Emirates will operate daily flights to Dubai from 9 January with an Airbus A330-200 operating in a three-class configuration, offering passengers a choice of First, Business and Economy class travel. It will also give its Emirates SkyCargo business a direct service to Dublin, as it will offer cargo capacity on every passenger flight.
Emirates, which is the world’s sixth largest airline, operates services to more than 114 destinations in 67 countries. Its Dubai hub in the United Arab Emirates has more than 1,000 flights per week to destinations in six continents.

“Emirates’ decision to enter the Irish market shows the continued demand for long-haul services into and out of Ireland,” Mr Collier said. “Connectivity is essential for business and for tourism and this new service to Dubai, and the onward connections that it will provide will be very beneficial for the Irish economy,” he added.

The new Emirates service to Dubai is the second new long-haul route to be launched from Terminal 2 since the facility opened last November. Earlier this year, US Airways added a seasonal daily service to Charlotte, North Carolina to its existing Dublin-Philadelphia service.

Emirates will join Aer Lingus, American Airlines, Continental Airlines, Delta, Etihad, and US Airways in Terminal 2. Terminal 1 at Dublin Airport has flights from Aer Arann, Air Canada, BMI, Cityjet, Lufthansa, Ryanair, SAS and a number of other scheduled airlines, as well as charter flights for summer and winter sun holidays and ski destinations.

The new Dublin-Dubai service will have a daily departure from Dublin at 12.55 arriving in Dubai at 0025 the following day. The return flight leaves Dubai at 7.00am with a scheduled arrival in Dublin at 11.30.

I am sure this has been discussed to death, but I'll ask again anyway . . .. I imagine international long haul travel from Dublin is relatively small in comparison to other markets. It seems the route only makes sense if it is connecting passengers to points distant in Asia/India. (Does it make sense to fly DUB-DXB-CPT? Certainly no connections to the USA!) Doesn't adding widebody capacity to a relatively small market flood the route with excess capacity? How do other airlines compete with such a large influx of seats?

I am sure Emirates has done its homework -- perhaps Dublin has a bigger market than appearances might suggest?

Yes, it does.

EY fly here 11 times a week, great loads, as well as service from all the US legacies multiple times a day, in addition to EI's long haul routes.

DUB has a larger long haul network than CPH, ARN, VIE, OSL, WAW, BER.

I'm sure a lot of people with Irish ancestry in Australia (read: lots of people) would welcome another carrier that would allow them to avoid the UK en route to their final destination. Etihad currently offer good one-stop connections from Australia into DUB.

in comparison to what markets exactly?

From summer 2012, scheduled long haul routes ex DUB are as follows:

Toronto (AC, TS)
Montreal (TS)
Chicago (AA, EI)
Orlando (EI)
Atlanta (DL)
New York JFK (EI, DL)
Newark (UA)
Boston (EI)
Philadelphia (US)
Charlotte (US)
Dubai (EK)
Abu Dhabi (EY)

In my estimation, this is quite a decent list of long haul destinations served from a country the size of Ireland.
There is a sizeable contingent of Irish in Australasia, which Etihad to date (and previously Gulf Air) has catered for extremely well, with EY now flying Dublin to Abu Dhabi 11 times per week.

For such a small population of the country, there is a fairly decent long haul market.

This flight will mainly target connecting traffic to Australia,China,India etc etc. But there is a reasonable point to point market.

Not only will this flight compete with Etihad directly. It will also try and pull some of the business that is currently going to the Far East Via LHR,FRA,AMS,CDG.

There are only 3 long haul countries served from DUB: US, Canada, UAE. It just so happens that the US has a long and rich history of Irish immigration hence the multiple cities served.
I wonder if either EK or EY would try to connect passengers to the US via DUB.

About f*&&***g time!

Can't remember how many "EK new routes" threads I've contributed to over the past 12 years when I thought, "Dublin must be next", usually followed by "you b*******s; how could you pick (name of city) over Dublin?"

But here it is ... and the best bit is that the 330s aren't going to be around forever, so EK will be aggressive in building the market so that within a year or two, as the 332s are being phased out, Dublin will be upgraded to 777s (or 777s will be upgraded to Dublin, depending on your perspective!)

I'm actually quite surprised that Dublin is going to be served by a three class A330; I was sure it would be a two class acft.

Anyway, absolutely terrific news; made my day - and I needed it; Jersey Air Show today was a washout!

I think the biggest looser, with this new service being announced will be Aer Lingus and BMI and the connecting carriers at Heathrow (probably British Airways and Star Alliance Carriers). A very large amount of the traffic on the DUB-LHR route is connecting, with the majority of point-to-point traffic between London and Dublin using Ryanair.

Also another looser will be the regional Irish airports like Cork and Shannon who have connections to LHR with EI, and I think a lot of this traffic will choose to drive to Dublin Airport and use the EK service.

Etihad and Turkish could also be loosers, but they will probably hold there own to an extent...

Love this news. Great stuff.

My gut says this will be an A332 for a short time until EK free up a 77W because right now the EY A330s kick EK's backside in the product department and in order to push EY out a 77W will probably be needed.

Would runway length at DUB be an issue re a 77W at MTOW vs A332? I bet there is quite a lot of cargo on the route.



What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

Short answer - yes, yes it would, but only at MTOW.

A 77W will comfortably make a destination within 8 hours flying time off 10/28. EY have used them into DUB on a couple of occasions.

I doubt EY will be pushed out either - both carriers seem to co-exist in many markets and in fact substantially grow them. some adjustment maybe, a pull out, doubtful.

I would have thought EY has most to lose; there will be a battle between them, but at the end of the day, EK has size on its side - a much bigger network and a better known name, with all the marketing "oomph" that goes with that. Although I would be sad to see EY go, if that happened, EK is the one we really need.

EI is never going to expand eastwards; its first foray out there, ironically to DXB (when it was led by an ex-EK executive, who clearly learned nothing from his time with EK) was a disaster. This makes it all the more important to have a "big hitter" like EK marketing us ("us" being Ireland Inc.).

I agree that EI will lose, to a certain extent, but I think that the era of dependance on LHR for long haul travel is probably gone, with TK/EY, but also other - more popular hubs, such as AMS, FRA and CPH.

If the price is competitive, folks will certainly fly to DXB over LHR when traveling to Africa and Asia. The facilities alone often make this a worthwhile detour.

To this point I used Gulf Air's former DUB-BAH-JNB service quite a few times before both BAH-DUB and BAH-JNB got axed around the same time when they reorganised a few years back. It came to price in the end for me, KL, BA, AF were in the running but GF were far cheaper, good service and generous baggage allowance with a relatively small flight time increase and no LHR hassle. The convenience factor for West Africa would be considerably less via DXB, BAH or AUH however Emirates have huge brand recognition in Ireland (even without a direct service up to now). I think routes like CPT and unusual new 1 stop routes like DUR will attract plenty Irish passengers as well as the other more obvious Australian/Asian destinations by brand allure alone.

Dubai doesn't exercise daylight saving time so EK times might change after next March. I think EI had a different timetable for the summertime when they would leave DUB at night and arrive in DXB the next morning.
