Emirates announced today its plan of launching a new daily service from Dubai to Penang International Airport in Malaysia via Singapore from 9 April 2020.
Penang will become Emirates' second destination in Malaysia after its capital, Kuala Lumpur, where the airline currently serves with three flights a day.
The flight will be operated by an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration, offering eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class and 304 spacious seats in Economy Class.
The service will also enable Emirates SkyCargo, the cargo division of Emirates to offer up to 15 tonnes of cargo capacity on the flight.
Emirates SkyCargo has been facilitating trade between Malaysia and the rest of the world since 1996.
