Emirates struts into Milan and Rome with daily non-stop services

Emirates Airline will soon offer non-stop daily flights to Italy’s fashion hub of Milan, as well as the nation’s capital Rome, bringing a new tailored approach to its Italian services. From July 1st, Emirates’ flights from Dubai to Milan and Rome will both be direct, non stop and running seven days a week.
Under the simplified routings, from July onwards, travellers to Milan and Rome can enjoy one continuous journey said the airline. The de-links will also increase passenger capacity on both routes, broaden passenger choice over seats and streamline the booking process for ticketing agents.
Keith Longstaff, Emirates’ Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Europe, said: "This is great news for our passengers travelling in and out of this part of southern Europe. By removing stops en route, we can get customers to their chosen destination faster and in greater comfort."
Mr Longstaff added: "We can also offer more cargo space as the hold will be exclusive to either Milan or Rome, eliminating the need to share precious cargo space with another destination. These significant service improvements highlight our increasing commitment to Italy and to the customers who value our products and services."
Emirates, which now reaches 99 destinations across six continents, has been serving Italy since 1992, when it started flights between Dubai and Rome, followed in 2000 by services to Milan.
In July last year, the airline launched flights to Venice, providing the only non-stop air link between the Middle East and one of the world’s best known tourist destinations.
