Emirates Airline said it has resumed service to Brisbane (BNE) in Australia.

The carrier is serving BNE daily from Dubai (DXB) using an Airbus A380 aircraft.

Emirates said in a statement that it has partnered with the Brisbane Economic Development Agency “to promote the city and its extensive range of opportunities for tourists and business travelers alike.”

The DXB-based airline added: “Brisbane has evolved to become a contemporary, global city offering a unique mix of culture, lifestyle and business. Brisbane’s subtropical climate encourages an active lifestyle, coupled with endless leisure offerings.”

Emirates noted its passenger network now reaches 140 destinations and 90% of its pre-pandemic network is in operation. “Emirates is focusing on bringing back the rest of its network based on easing of [COVID-19] restrictions in certain countries, and other operational factors,” the airline said.
