Posted 20 March 2019 · Add Comment

Emirates has announced it will increase the frequency of flights between Dubai and Cairo, adding four additional flights a week to its existing thrice-daily service, starting 28 October, 2019.

 

The four new flights operating on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, will take the total number of weekly Emirates flights serving Cairo to 25.

“Cairo is a very popular destination for both business and leisure travellers, and the additional flights will provide our customers with greater flexibility in their travel choices, and allow seamless connectivity to Emirates’ vast global network. There is a clear demand for our award-winning products and services. We’ve seen a consistent demand for the Emirates experience, with passenger occupancy on the route averaging 90 per cent. These additional flights will not only cater to the growing demand, but also help support tourism and trade in Egypt,” said Orhan Abbas, Emirates' senior vice president, commercial operations Africa.

Emirates started operations to Cairo in April 1986 with three flights a week. Operations have steadily grown with increases in both frequency and capacity between Cairo and Dubai to match customer demand. Today, Emirates operates 21 weekly flights between Cairo and Dubai. Globally, the airline employs more than 2,000 Egyptian nationals in a variety of roles across the Emirates Group, including over 1,000 cabin crew.
