Penang to become Emirates’ second destination in Malaysia

The Dubai-based international award-winning airline will be launching a new daily service from Dubai to Penang International Airport via Singapore from 9 April 2020. The Emirates flight to Penang will be a linked service with Singapore, allowing passengers to travel easily between the two cities while enjoying the airline’s award-winning service.

Penang will become Emirates’ second destination in Malaysia after its capital, Kuala Lumpur, which is currently served with three flights a day. The flight will be operated by an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration, offering eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie flat seats in Business Class and 304 spacious seats in Economy Class. The new route enables travellers from the northern cities of Malaysia to enjoy convenient onward connections from Dubai to destinations in Europe, North America and the Middle East.

Located on the north-western coast of Malaysia, the state comprises a mainland portion as well as an island, connected by Malaysia’s two longest road bridges. Penang is the country’s second-largest populated city and is known for its rich heritage and architecture, vibrant multicultural society, modern entertainment and retail options, cuisine as well as the natural beauty of its beaches and hills. The city is also home to a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a variety of tourist attractions.
