Emirates will boost its services to Riyadh with the addition of a fourth daily flight to the Saudi capital from September 1st.
The addition of the fourth daily service will take the total number of weekly Emirates flights serving Riyadh to 28.
Adil Al Ghaith, senior vice president commercial operations, Gulf, Middle East & Iran said: “Emirates’ expanded schedule to Riyadh will offer more travel options and choice for business travellers and families alike who are looking to visit Dubai.
“There are strong passenger flows between Riyadh and Dubai so enhancing our services makes business sense, and further underscores Riyadh’s importance within our global network.”
The fourth daily flight will be serviced by the Boeing 777-300ER in a three-class configuration.
Emirates flight EK813 will depart Dubai at 15:00 arriving in Riyadh at 15:50.
