Emirates will increase the frequency of flights between Dubai and Cairo, adding four additional flights a week to its existing thrice-daily service, starting 28 October 2019. The four new flights operating on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, will take the total number of weekly Emirates flights serving Cairo to 25.
“Cairo is a very popular destination for both business and leisure travelers, and the additional flights will provide our customers with greater flexibility in their travel choices, and allow seamless connectivity to Emirates’ vast global network. There is a clear demand for our award-winning products and services. We’ve seen a consistent demand for the Emirates experience, with passenger occupancy on the route averaging 90 per cent. These additional flights will not only cater to the growing demand, but also help support tourism and trade in Egypt,” said Orhan Abbas, Emirates’ Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations Africa.
Similar to the current service, the new flights will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER in a three-class configuration
The additional Dubai – Cairo flight EK 921 will leave Dubai at 12:00hrs and will arrive in Cairo at 14:15hrs. The return flight, EK922, will depart Cairo at 16:15hrs and will arrive in Dubai at 21:35hrs.
