Emirates has announced plans to add one more daily direct flight between Dubai and Colombo from 1 December 2022 to cater to the seasonal increase in the demand for travel.
The additional service, EK648/EK649, will increase the number of daily flights between the two cities to three, including two direct flights and one operating via the Maldivian capital Male.
Emirates’ additional daily service will operate direct between Dubai and Colombo, except during 16 to 30 December, when the service from Dubai to Colombo will stop over in Male.
From 1 to 15 December and from 31 December to 26 March, EK648 will depart Dubai at 16:10hrs daily and arrive in Colombo at 21:55hrs, all times local. Flight EK648 will be routed via Male from 16th to 30th December, and will during that period, depart Dubai at 10.30hrs, arrive in Male at 14.45hrs, depart for Colombo at 17.15hrs and arrive in Colombo at 19.15hrs.
From 1 December to 26 March, flight EK649 is scheduled to depart Colombo at 02:55hrs and arrive in Dubai at 05:55hrs.
