Emirates is reinstating its flights to Adelaide at the end of October, reconnecting South Australians with its Dubai hub. While other regions, particularly Europe and the UK, face uncertainty, Emirates is committed to serving Adelaide.
Starting October 28, Boeing 777-200LR aircraft will operate daily flights. With 38 passengers in Emirates’ flatbed Business Class, configured in a 2-2-2 layout (although a new 1-2-1 Business Class is on the horizon), and 264 economy recliners. Notably, this 777 model does not feature Emirates Premium Economy.
Having initially introduced flights to Adelaide in 2012, Emirates temporarily suspended services in March 2020 due to the global pandemic. Now, following the successful resumption of operations in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth, Adelaide rejoins Emirates’ route network.
As a partner airline of Qantas, Emirates flights to Adelaide can be conveniently booked through Qantas codeshare, with flight numbers prefixed as QF8xxx. This arrangement allows passengers to accrue full-service benefits, including Qantas points and status credits.

“Emirates’ return to Adelaide has been eagerly awaited by passengers and the industry,” says Barry Brown, Emirates Divisional Vice President Australasia. “We are equally excited to resume services to South Australia, providing the state with leisure, cultural, and tourism opportunities, while also supporting business growth.”
Emirates’ return to Adelaide is supported by the South Australian state government, which anticipates that the daily flights will generate approximately $160 million in annual tourism expenditure and merchandise exports.
“Restoring Emirates flights to Adelaide has been a key priority for the state government,” says SA Premier Peter Malinauskas. Tourism Minister Zoe Bettison adds, “This marks a significant milestone in the recovery of our state’s tourism industry, fostering connections to South Australia’s traditionally robust European markets, as well as the UK, the Middle East, India, and the US East Coast.”
