From September 1, Emirates will upgrade its service on the route between Dubai and Khartoum, the capital of Sudan.
A Boeing 777-300ER aircraft will replace the A340-300 aircraft which currently flies this route. It will have 100 more economy seats than its predecessor, with a total of 310, in addition to eight private suites in first class, and 42 flat beds in business class.
Emirates’ service between Dubai and Khartoum connects passengers from India to Sudan and its neighbouring countries such and Chad and Nigeria via Dubai. The oil-rich countries are of much interest to India, who has already invested heavily in Sudan.
The Delhi-Dubai sector is served by a Boeing 777-300ER.
