Emirates Airlines is stepping up its services to Europe by increasing flights to Nice and connecting the French city non-stop to the airlines international hub in Dubai. The current three flights a week from Nice, each with a stopover in Rome, will change to five weekly non-stop services from December 1. Emirates will then become the only airline offering such regular connecting flights linking southern France with the Middle East, Asia and the Far East. The flights will be operated by an Airbus A330-200 aircraft. The new services will coincide with the airlines 15th anniversary of flights between Nice and Dubai.
