Emirates’ 7 daily flights to Bangkok
I read recently that Emirates launched their 7th daily flight to Bangkok… I can’t imagine that there are actually enough passengers on that route daily to warrant all those flights, so I was wondering if anyone else has an idea for Emirates’ reason for so many flights on that route
EY is based around connecting traffic. There are plenty of people from other parts of the world who can get a one stop trip to Thailand via DXB.
Thailand is very popular as a tourist destination, figures I have seen is somewhere just under 2.5 millions from UK, Germany and France alone.
Not sure how many daily seats those 7 flights amounts to. 3000 seats X 365 is just under 1.1 million, 4000 seats X 365 is 1.46 million per year.
So demand out of Europe alone would fill a lot of those seats, then you have eastern US. And probably some traffic from ME, Africa and South America
