Emirates will reinstate two weekly flights between Luanda and Dubai
Emirates announced it will reinstate two weekly flights between Luanda and Dubai, which will increase their capacity to five flights per week between the two cities. The new winter schedule will increase the flight frequency to daily.
The flights will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER with eight seats in First Class, 42 in Business Class and 310 in Economy Class, with 360 seats on offer in a three-class configuration.
In addition, the new flights will also offer up to 23 tonnes of extra cargo per flight, giving companies and merchants the opportunity to increase imports of electronic equipment, construction and pharmaceuticals products.
Orhan Abbas, Emirates Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations for Africa, said: "As a country rich in resources, Angola has a lot to offer global trade and we have recognised a need to enhance our capacity to enable greater connectivity between our network and Luanda.
“These flights and growing our service to a daily operation, will benefit trade links, boost investment and will contribute to the economy by promoting business and supporting Angola’s supply chain.”
