Emirates has announced that it will launch a daily service from Dubai to London Stansted from next summer.

The new daily route will commence on 8 June 2018, making Emirates the first Middle Eastern airline to operate out of the North East London airport.

Citing the airport’s strategic position close to the tech and pharma hubs of Cambridge and Peterborough, Emirates will deploy the airline’s new three-class Boeing 777-300ER on the route.
