Emirates is to start a daily service between Edinburgh, and Dubai on October 1.
Edinburgh will become Emirates' second destination in Scotland after Glasgow and its 8th in the UK, once a daily service to London Stansted starts in June.
The new service will be operated by an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER in a three-class cabin configuration, with 8 private suites in first class, 42 lie flat seats in business class and 304 spacious seats in economy class.
Hubert Frach, divisional senior vice president, commercial operations for Emirates said: "We're increasing our capacity to Scotland to meet growing demand, and by introducing a daily flight to Edinburgh, it will complement our current double daily flights between Dubai and Glasgow.
Edinburgh is a very popular leisure and business destination, and the new service will offer our customers from across our global network, particularly from key inbound markets such as Asia and Australia, a direct option to the city via our Dubai hub."
