Emirates slash Sydney flight time
Sydney is now less than a day's travel from Scotland thanks to new connecting flights introduced today by Emirates. The journey time from Glasgow to Sydney has been slashed to 22 hours 25 minutes due to new quicker connections at the airline's Dubai hub.
The onward flight to Sydney has been time tabled to depart just 75 minutes after the arrival of Emirates' daily flight from Glasgow. This new quicker connection cuts almost 8 hours off the previous journey time.
The daily air link between Glasgow and Dubai is regarded as Scotland's most successful long haul route, and the airline says that out of every 100 passengers flying out of Glasgow, 75 use Dubai as a hub to fly to other cities.
Laurie Berryman, Emirates’ UK Manager, said: ‘Australia is a key destination for both business and leisure passengers from Scotland. Our new Sydney service makes flying Down Under quicker than ever.’
