To meet the strengthening demand for its Dubai-Cairo route, Emirates has increased its flights to 12 per week, with flights operating twice a day, on five days of the week. The increase of the three weekly flights, which took effect 1 May 2011, offers greater support for both inbound and outbound passengers, as well as passengers flying from Cairo beyond Dubai through the multitude of Emirates connections available to over 100 destinations globally.
“The increase in flights is reflective of the level of traffic at Cairo International Airport returning to normal,” said Jean Luc Grillet, Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations for Africa. “Cairo has consistently been one of the busiest routes for Emirates, and we are committed to enhancing our presence here.” “Expanding on the frequency of flights to Cairo will give our customers greater flexibility in choosing their travel times, as well as help boost further business and tourism opportunities in Egypt,” he added.
Currently, Emirates’ flights to Cairo are served by a mixture of Airbus A330- 200 aircraft (offering 237 seats in a three class configuration: 12 First Class Suites, 42 Business Class and 183 Economy Class seats) and Boeing 777-200.
