Emirates is to launch a new daily route from Stansted Airport to Dubai. It will become the first Middle Eastern airline to operate out of the Essex airport when services begin in June.

The carrier said the flights will connect technology and pharmaceutical firms in Cambridge and Peterborough with a global network of more than 154 destinations through its Dubai hub.

The introduction of the new London Stansted-Dubai route not only signifies 10 daily flights between Dubai and three different London airports, but is also welcome news to businesses based in the Stansted catchment area who, before now, travelled to Central London

We're delighted that Emirates has recognised the strength of London Stansted's catchment and the opportunity that our available runway capacity gives them to continue growing in the South East of England over the next decade
