Emirates is set to increase frequencies between Dubai and Egypt.

From October 29, the airline will operate four additional weekly services to Cairo, raising the number of flights to three a day.

Emirates’ senior vice president of commercial operations for Africa, Orhan Abbas, said:

“Emirates is committed to offering customers more flights choices, which will enable them to seamlessly connect to points across the Middle East, Asia, Americas, Africa and Australia including Bahrain, Muscat, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Hong Kong, New York, San Francisco, Cape Town, Entebbe, Melbourne, and Sydney; while experiencing the most comfortable and entertaining experience in the sky.

We will continue to invest in Egypt, empowering the local economy and helping it expand its business and tourism presence.”

Operated by a 360-seat B777-300ER, the additional Dubai – Cairo flight EK 925 will leave Dubai at 2050, arriving in Cairo at 2305. The return flight, EK926, will depart Cairo at 0045, arriving in Dubai at 0615.

Emirates operates 17 weekly flights between Cairo and Dubai. It also recently opened a new lounge in Boston, and has expanded its inflight wifi service to all Emirates Skywards Platinum and Gold members.
