Australians will be able to book return Economy Class airfares starting from $1,369 to Dublin, $1,379 to Rome, $1,389 to Madrid and $1,399 to London.

While return Business Class airfares start from $6,699 to Madrid, $6,719 to Rome, $6,879 to Dublin and $6,939 to London.

Emirates also recently launched a daily A380 service to Zagreb, Croatia which brings the airline’s European destinations to 39.

Emirates operates 77 flights per week from Australia to its hub in Dubai, with services from Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney, including seven daily A380 flights.
