Emirates from Dubai adds seasonal direct flight to Colombo

Emirates will add an additional daily direct flight between Dubai and Colombo, starting December 1.

The additional service, operating as EK648/EK649, will bring the number of daily flights between the two cities to three. These include two direct flights and one operating via the Maldivian capital, Male.

The second daily flight will operate directly between the two cities, except from December 16 to 30, when the service from Dubai to Colombo will call at Male.

From December 1 to December 15 and December 31 to March 26, EK648 will depart Dubai at 4:10 p.m. daily and arrive in Colombo at 9:55 p.m. all local times. Flight EK648 will be routed via Male from December 16 to 30 and during this period will depart Dubai at 10:30 a.m. and arrive in Male at 2:45 p.m. It will then depart from Malé at 5:15 p.m. and arrive in Colombo at 7:15 p.m.

Meanwhile, the return flight EK649 is scheduled to take off from Colombo at 2:55 a.m. and arrive in Dubai at 5:55 a.m., for the duration from December 1 to March 26.

Emirates operates its Boeing 777-300ERs in a three-class configuration on flights to Colombo. The carrier launched its operations in Sri Lanka in 1986 and celebrated 36 years of operations in Colombo earlier this year.

This year, Emirates also signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Board to reaffirm its commitment to Sri Lanka.
