Emirates will launch a daily non-stop service between Dubai and Auckland from 1 March 2016 using a Boeing 777-200LR aircraft, and this will be their fifth daily service to New Zealand.
This new service will operate as EK 448, the flight will depart Dubai at 10:05am and arrive in Auckland the following day at 11:00am (local summer time).
The return flight will operate as EK 449, departing Auckland at 9:30pm, arriving in Dubai the following morning at 5:45 am (local time)

Emirates will operate the world’s longest passenger flight when it begins its nonstop service to Auckland from its Dubai hub with a Boeing 777-200LR.
The Dubai-Auckland route measures 7,668 nautical miles, according to the Great Circle Mapper, eclipsing Qantas’s Airbus A380 route between Sydney and Dallas/Fort Worth at 7,454nm which currently holds the record as the longest nonstop passenger flight.

Every day Emirates flies the A380 from Dubai to Brisbane (EK 434); Dubai - Sydney (EK 412) Dubai - Melbourne (EK 406); these 3 A380's  then continue on to Auckland. Emirates also flies from Dubai - Bangkok - Sydney using a B777-300 ER. This aircraft then continues on to Christchurch
