Emirates is to double the number of flights on its Dublin Dubai route, CEO Tim Clark said.

He made the comment at the airline's headquarters in Dubai, following a meeting with the Taoiseach Enda Kenny. The event marked the second anniversary of Emirates' Dublin route.

The increase in flight numbers - from one flight to two - is expected to kick off in September.
