Emirates may cut flight frequency on US, Europe, Asia routes

Emirates said to reduce the frequency of services on a number of routes to Europe, Asia and US in the coming months. As reported by Routesonline.com, a schedule update showed the carrier was reducing its Dubai to Fort Lauderdale and Dubai to Orlando services from once a day to five times a week, after July 2 and 3 respectively.

The change represents a return to the previous schedule after the carrier said in January it would be restoring daily services to both locations from March 25 following a “steady rebound in customer demand”.

Other reductions include a decrease in frequency from Dubai to Bangkok from six to four-five a day during May and early June and a similar change for Dubai to Kuala Lumpur from three to two a day.

The carrier is reported to be cancelling services from Dubai to London Heathrow from six to a five a day from April 25 to May 22, from three to two a day to Munich on certain dates in May and June and seven to six a week to Oslo in May.

In addition, flights to Phuket will be cut from 14 to 11 weekly during the May 7-30 period, said Routesonline.
