Four additional flights a week to Durban for the summer season
Emirates has introduced its First-Class cabin in Durban, in conjunction with the airline’s seasonal frequency increase of four additional flights a week, bringing the airline’s award-winning, luxury travel experience to the coastal South African city.
During the seasonal increase from 14 June to 04 August 2019, travellers to and from Durban can enjoy the Emirates’ First Class cabins on the airline’s Boeing 777-300ER.
The aircraft will operate the additional flights in a three-class cabin configuration, offering eight seats in First Class, 42 in Business Class and 310 spacious seats in Economy Class.
Fouad Caunhye, Regional Manager of Emirates Southern Africa, said: “As we approach 10 years of operations to Durban, introducing our award-winning First Class experience is a milestone in our history of operations to the city.
“Travellers will have an opportunity to experience the luxury product offering the Emirates is so well-known for, whether they are heading to Dubai or connecting to popular destinations across our network including India, UK and the Far East.
“The seasonal frequency increase is a result of the growing demand for travel in and out of Durban.”
From June, Emirates has also launched a new menu on this route; the revamped menu will consist of some local specialities in all classes to showcase the diverse culture and strong Indian influence from the city of Durban.
The Emirates Boeing 777-300ER offers First Class passengers a private suite with seats that recline to a full-flat bed and a personal electrically-controlled mini-bar.
Features also include touch screen Wireless Integrated Passenger Seat Controllers for Emirates’ in-flight entertainment (ice) and seat functions, as well as a 32” HD LCD screen.
With electrically-operated privacy dividers, First Class suites offer passengers maximum exclusivity – even from an adjoining suite.
