Emirates is set to add a new flight from Dubai to Auckland, New Zealand via Denpasar (Bali), Indonesia effective 14 June 2018. The new service will be operated with three-class Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. Emirates will have full traffic rights between Bali and Auckland meaning it can sell tickets for these city pairs. It will be the only carrier to offer year round non-stop flights in this market. Air New Zealand offers seasonal service between Auckland and Bali.
The current daily non-stop A380 operated from Dubai to Auckland will remain and is unaffected by this new route announcement. Emirates has made significant changes to its New Zealand and Trans-Tasman services. The airline suspended its daily A380 Sydney – Auckland flights last year and is set to suspend its daily A380 Melbourne/Brisbane to Auckland flights at the end of March. The A380 Sydney – Christchurch flight will continue.
The new services are already on sale through all distribution channels.
