Dubai-based Emirates has announced that it will be increasing its flights to and from Cairo from October 29, 2022, offering more options for travellers to connect to Dubai, as well as the opportunity to experience the Emirates A380’s signature features.
The airline will operate four daily flights to Cairo, with three on the A380 and one on the Boeing 777. This means a significant increase from the current 25 weekly flights between the two destinations.
Cairo has the highest deployment of Emirates A380 services in the MENA region, outside of Dubai. The additional services and increase in seat capacity on the Dubai-Cairo route will help meet high demand to and from Cairo and support the country’s tourism industry with an additional 2,200 weekly seats in each direction.
Emirates’ third A380 service to Cairo, EK925, will depart Dubai at 20:40hrs landing at 22:55hrs. EK926 will then depart Cairo, the following day at 00:40 hrs, to arrive in Dubai at 06:10hrs.
The Emirates A380 is a popular aircraft for travellers, and it’s easy to see why. Its spacious and comfortable cabins, onboard lounge, first-class suites and shower spa make it one of the best ways to travel in the sky. The modern Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration on flights to Cairo offers Emirates’ award-winning service and industry-leading products, with private suites in first class, lie-flat seats in business class and spacious seats in economy class.
Emirates has been operating flights to Cairo since April 1986, with just three flights a week. Since then, the airline has carried 9.6 million passengers to and from Cairo.
The operation has steadily grown with increases in both frequency and capacity between Cairo and Dubai to match customer demand. In Africa, Cairo to Dubai was among the top three routes with the number of seats with 123,408 seats according to OAG.
Overall, Emirates’ operations to and from Cairo have made an important contribution to the local economy and tourism industry, flying in visitors from across its global network spanning six continents.
