Emirates airline to open direct route between Porto and Dubai

Boosting connections between Portugal and Dubai, Emirates airlines has announced the launch of a new direct route, this time from Porto (Twice-daily flights already exist between Lisbon).

The new service will run four times a week, offering three price ranges: first class (with eight ‘suites’), business class (42 seats) and economy (310 seats).

The airline’s president Tim Clark said the expansion seeks to satisfy increasing demand, both business and pleasure.
