Emirates Lands in Santiago de Chile via Sao Paulo

Emirates launched a new, five times-a-week service from Dubai to Santiago International Airport, via the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo, marking the airline’s first arrival in Chile.

“Santiago is a very popular leisure and business destination, and this new service will offer customers across our global network, particularly from key inbound markets such the Far East, Middle East and West Asia, a great travel option to South America,” revealed Hubert Frach, divisional senior vice president, commercial operations, Emirates.

Flight EK263 will depart Dubai on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, while the return flight, EK264, is set to depart Santiago on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Emirates revealed that the strong bookings from and to Santiago reflect travellers’ growing demand for the destination.
