From April 9, Emirates will start a new daily service between Singapore and Penang.
EK 348 will arrive in Singapore from Dubai at 14.05 before departing again at 15.35 and arriving into Penang at 17.15 on the same day. The return flight EK 349 will depart Penang at 22.20, arriving in Singapore at 23.50. The flight from Singapore will then depart at 01.40 the following day, bound for Dubai where it will arrive at 04.55.
The fifth-freedom route will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration.
Penang will become Emirates’ second destination in Malaysia after its capital, Kuala Lumpur, which the airline currently serves with three flights a day, and is a route that has been operating since 1996.
