Dubai: As part of expanding their services, Emirates has launched a new service to Tokyo. Passengers from Middle East, Africa, South America and Europe joined the airline's inaugural non-stop flight from Dubai to Narita International Airport in Tokyo. This is Emirates' second destination in Japan. Earlier, the airline launched a service to Osaka in 2002.

Richard Vaughan, Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations Worldwide, a number of the airline's guests from Tokyo and Dubai and members of the media also boarded the first flight.

"We already have a great deal of experience in serving Japan and we are confident in robust demand for our Tokyo services. In fact we are expecting our seat factor to be over 80 percent on our Tokyo route during its first year," said Vaughan.

Emirates passengers from the U.S. can connect to Tokyo flight EK 319 in Dubai through EK202 from New York, EK216 from Los Angeles, EK226 from San Francisco and EK212 from Houston.

The airline will serve the Tokyo route five times a week on Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday using its Boeing 777-300ER with eight Private Suites in First Class; 42 flat-bed seats in Business Class and 304 Economy Class seats.

The flight will depart Dubai at 3:15 a.m. and touch down at Tokyo's Narita International Airport at 6:00 p.m. the same day. Return flight EK 319 will depart at 9:40 p.m., and it will reach Dubai 4:35 a.m. the following day. The service also connects to the key hubs in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
