I hadnít appreciated the current timings arenít the best for return onward connections, although theyíre decent for Oz/NZ, South Africa, Bangkok and Bali. The second flight will however really open up India/Bangladesh/Pakistan, Africa and SE Asia from STN and further expand Australia.

Absolutely brilliant news for Stansted and a real boost for the airport. This is showing Stanstedís potential and that it can support long haul travel and is not just a low cost hub.

Flight Details:
EK65 DXB 0900-1330 STN
EK67 DXB 1415-1845 STN

EK66 STN 1500-0105 DXB
EK68 STN 2110-0710 DXB

Emirates making better use of the aircraft with quicker turnaround times and not having the plane sitting on the ground here for a long period.
Also good to see that they will be using the newest cabin design B77W on the new flights as well shows their is a demand for the First Class product and not just Business and Economy.
Hopefully an announcement will be made shortly about the possibility of the Emirates Lounge opening in Satellite 1.

Is it too early to ask when the 3rd daily will be announced?

Iíve seen they have A330-900N on order but looking at the maximum distance of the aircraft would not reach Stansted from Jakarta or Bali.
Iíve asked a few friends at work and from other companies and no one has heard anything as of yet.

Lion Airís subsidiary Thai Lion Air also has 2 A330-900 on order. Those could probably make it from Bangkok.

Now that would be interesting if it was ThaiLion.
I know when Eurowings offered long haul connections through Cologne that quite a few passengers would be on connections to Bankgkok and Phuket. Also I have seen and spoke to a number of passengers flying with Emirates to Thailand.

Great news on EK going double daily. And with First Class suites at the pointy end. Who said thereís no money to be made in the Premium offerings at Londonís third airport and that itís just perceived as a loco hub? Times are changing hopefully.
Itíll certainly be my first choice going eastbound from now on.

Jota Aviation at SEN can send up 2 RJ/146 to help TUI with 737 MAX groundings - bit range limited but could help

Suspect Titan might be getting quite a bit of business from TUI in the near future.
