Emirates Set to Serve Alexandria

Emirates, the world’s fastest growing
intercontinental airline, is gearing up to launch its services to
Alexandria, the ‘Pearl of the Mediterranean’, situated in the north of
Egypt. The city will mark the airline’s 79th destination on its rapidly expanding
network and the second gateway to that country after Cairo, located 150kms

From 15th May, Emirates will fly daily to Alexandria’s Borg Al Arab Airport. EK931 will depart Dubai at 09:10hrs to reach Alexandria at 12:30hrs;
return flight EK932 will leave the city at 14:00hrs to reach Dubai at
19:00hrs. The airline will deploy its A310 aircraft in a two class
configuration - 21 in Business and 177 in Economy. Those wanting to return
home at a later time can connect to Dubai via the Cairo flight that departs
the city at 19:15hrs everyday.


Emirates has carefully scheduled services to enable tourists and business
executives from the UAE and the GCC to connect quickly to Egypt, slashing
transit times significantly. Alexandria also serves as a convenient,
alternative route into this mystical land of the Pharoahs that has modern,
bustling trade and tourism industries.



To provide a hassle-free seamless travel experience Emirates’ Business class
passengers can enjoy luxurious limo services between Alexandria and Cairo
while Economy class passengers will be offered free bus services to Cairo


HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Emirates’ Chairman said: “Alexandria
has been on our route radar for sometime now and I am delighted to announce
the launch of our services to the city.  It is an ideal partnership between
two cities that have enjoyed traditional trade ties since ancient times.


“We are confident that our ultra-modern facilities and services will help
catalyse trade and tourism between Alexandria and our worldwide network. We
also are happy that our new, convenient flights will further serve the
substantial Egyptian community residing in the UAE.”
