Emirates Airline to increase Dubai-Nairobi flight frequency starting December 15
Emirates Airlines will enhance its flights to double – daily frequency on the Dubai – Nairobi route starting December 15, which is a return to the pre-pandemic levels by bringing all 14 flights on the route in a move aimed at enhancing connectivity between the two cities and to onward destinations.
In addition to the increased capacity, the airline says, the new flights will provide around 80 tonnes of cargo capacity per flight, opening more trade lanes for Kenya’s exports such as horticulture and meat to land in the market in a timely fashion.
“Similar to the current daily service between Dubai and Kenya, the added frequencies will be operated with Emirates’ Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, offering eight private suites in first class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business class and 310 spacious seats in Economy Class, “the carrier said in a statement on Friday.”
The move is also set to boost Kenya’s tourism sector through the connecting of leisure travelers moving from countries such as the US, Europe and the Middle East into the country via Dubai.
