Emirates now flies to New Zealand

Award-winning Emirates Airways has launched a daily service from the Thai capital Bangkok to New Zealand’s beautiful city of Christchurch. New Zealand is fast becoming a popular travel destination for Thai travelers, and the daily service will make it easier than ever to reach New Zealand’s festival capital.

The new flight will make a brief stopover in Sydney on its way to Christchurch. Emirates is using a Boeing 777-300 for this route, offering 364 seats in three different classes.

Khalid Bardan, Manager for Thailand and Indochina, said, “As the only direct daily flight from Bangkok to Christchurch, this service represents Emirates’ commitment to the Thailand market. New Zealand has always been popular with Thai leisure travellers but it is also a key market for Thais studying abroad. For both groups Christchurch offers a wealth of entertainment and cultural activities throughout the year.”

The latest Emirates flight takes 13 hours 45 minutes to travel from Bangkok to Christchurch. The Boeing 777-300 is outfitted with 12 luxury seats in First class, 42 comfortable lie-flat beds in Business class, and surprisingly generous space for 310 passengers in its Economy class.
