emirates-to-start-three-additional-weekly-flights-to-egypt-02Dubai-based Emirates has announced the launch of three new weekly flights between Dubai and Cairo, Egypt from 1st January 2016. The new flights will complement the current twice daily flights, taking the total number of flights operating between the two cities to 17 each week.

The airline will be operating the new weekly service with an Airbus A330-200, offering 12 seats in First Class, 42 in Business Class and 183 Economy Class seats.

The additional flights will result in added options for travellers flying into or from Cairo to destinations in the Middle East, Asia and Americas. This includes a number of key cities that are being served by Emirates’ A380s such as Beijing, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai, Mumbai, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Toronto.

“We are delighted to be able to grow our business in Cairo, on the back of commercial demand and great customer support. In the past eight years, the route has carried over 2.7 million passengers and moved over 200,000 tons of cargo,” said Adil Al Ghaith, Senior Vice President Commercial Operations for Northern and Western Africa.

“Cairo is a very popular destination for both business and leisure travellers, and is a gateway to many of the country’s major tourist attractions such as the Giza pyramids, the Great Sphinx, the ancient temples of Luxor dating back thousands of years and many more. We anticipate that our additional capacity will stimulate further growth in both tourism and business traffic on the route,” he added.

Flight EK925 will leave Dubai every Sunday, Monday and Friday at 20:50 and land in Cairo at 23:05. The return flight, EK926, will depart Cairo on Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturday at 00:35 and arrive in Dubai at 06:15.
