Emirates have announced that they hope to increases flights from Dubai to Australia to 100 a week after seeing a 52% rise in profit for the year to $1.5bn.
Emirates currently operate around 70 flights a week to Australia and under the current bilateral agreement, Emirates can operate up to 85 flights to Australia, however Chairman for Emirates Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed al-Maktoum is confident that they will be able to expand on that to 100 flights a week. Emirates would of course require permission from the Australian travel authorities to increase capacity.
The total number of passengers travelling between the UAE and Australia has surged over the last decade, with Emirates operating just four flights a week to Australia when it launched the route in 1996.
