Emirates will increase capacity on its services to Egypt from October 29 with the launch of four additional scheduled flights every week to Cairo.
The four new flights will increase the number of frequencies between the two cities to three each day, and take the total number of weekly Emirates flights serving Cairo to 21.
Similar to the current service between the two cities, the new flights will be operated by a 360-seat Boeing 777-300ER in a three-class configuration featuring eight private suites, 42 business class and 310 economy class seats; adding 1,440 seats each way per week on the route as well as 23 tonnes of additional capacity for cargo per flight.
The additional Dubai – Cairo flight EK 925 will leave Dubai at 08:50pm and will arrive in Cairo at 11:05pm. The return flight, EK926, will depart Cairo at 12:45am and arrives in Dubai at 06:15am.
Emirates started operations to Cairo in April 1986 with three flights a week. Operations have steadily grown with increases in both frequency and capacity between Cairo and Dubai. Today, Emirates operates 17 weekly flights between Cairo and Dubai.
