According to the Office for National Statistics, the UK welcomed 31.2 million overseas visitors in 2022, with a total spend of more than £26.5 billion.

In the last year alone, the airline carried more than six million passengers to and from its seven UK gateways.

London continues to be one of the most popular routes in Emirates’ network].

Emirates currently operates 82 weekly flights at Heathrow, Gatwick, and Stansted hubs, on a wide-body fleet of Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 aircraft.

Travel demand on the Dubai to Glasgow route also continues to grow, up by 51% year-on-year so far in 2024.

Richard Jewsbury, Emirates Divisional VP in the UK, said: “We are proud to play an instrumental role in connecting the UK to our global network, and in boosting travel and trade.”

Outbound travel from the UK is also anticipated to rise in 2024 with Emirates reporting a strong increase in forward bookings to Dubai, and onward to the Far East and Indian Ocean.
