 Emirates has launched a second daily flight between Dubai and Prague. The reason? To meet the increasing demand for travel on the route.

The airline has been serving the Czech market since 2010 and during this time has carried around 1.7 million passengers on the route. To meet the rising demand for both inbound and outbound travel, the airline has added this new daily flight operated by a Boeing 777-300ER with a capacity of 360 seats, boosting tourism into the Czech Republic by 262,800 seats a year.

The new flight will accommodate three classes on board, with eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class and 310 spacious seats in Economy.

Flight EK137 leaves Dubai at 3:30pm and arrives in Prague at 7:55pm. The return flight EK138 leaves Prague at 9:35pm and arrives in Dubai at 5:30am the following day, giving travellers the full day in Dubai. 

The service also provides seamless connectivity to Prague from several popular destinations including Bali, Bangkok, Colombo, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Kathmandu, Kuala Lumpur, Maldives, Mauritius and Singapore, with a convenient afternoon departure time from Dubai. 

First Class and Business Class customers can take advantage of a complimentary chauffeur driven car to and from both Dubai and Prague airports as well as access to Emirates’ exclusive airport lounges worldwide, including Premium airport lounge access on departure at Prague airport.

Emirates customers departing or transiting through Dubai can also enjoy complimentary ice cream at Dubai International Airport until the end of August.
