Emirates enhances Luanda service

Posted 12 June 2018 · Add Comment

Emirates will reinstate two weekly flights between Luanda and Dubai, increasing capacity to five flights per week between the two cities, starting from 1 July 2018.

Customers can look forward to a daily service starting from the winter schedule.

These additional flights will give passengers more travel choices and address the growing demand for connectivity on Emirates’ global network, especially to destinations in Asia, USA and Europe. The flights will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER with eight seats in First Class, 42 in Business Class and 310 in Economy Class, with 360 seats on offer in a three-class configuration.

"As a country rich in resources, Angola has a lot to offer global trade and we have recognised a need to enhance our capacity to enable greater connectivity between our network and Luanda. We remain committed to serving our customers in Angola with not only advanced aircraft, but also more innovative product and service options,” said Orhan Abbas, Emirates Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations for Africa. “Reinstating these flights and growing our service to a daily operation, will benefit trade links, boost investment and will contribute to the economy by promoting business and supporting Angola’s supply chain," added Abbas.
