Initially operating on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, the airline will increase this to a daily service from 1st May.
On 1st May, the new Dubai-Bangkok-Sydney daily service will also be extended to Auckland in New Zealand, replacing the current Dubai-Sydney-Auckland daily service which will then terminate in Sydney. This move opens up new connections between Bangkok and Sydney, and Bangkok and Auckland.
