Increased Frequency ... Emirates Adds 3rd Daily Flight On Dubai, Nairobi Route


Emirates says that starting June 1, 2017, it will launch a third daily flight between Dubai and Kenya's capital, Nairobi, increasing Emirates weekly scheduled flights between the two cities to 21.

The airline discloses that, as with its two other daily flights on the route, the third flight will also be operated using Boeing 777-300ER which will have eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class and 304 spacious seats in Economy Class.

"The additional flight gives our customers greater flexibility and choice when planning their travel. The time slot of the third flight from Dubai to Nairobi will enable customers arriving on Emirates' flights from India, the UK and many European countries such as France, the Czech Republic, Ireland, Netherlands and Italy to connect to the Nairobi flight. The return flight from Nairobi to Dubai is also conveniently timed to arrive in Dubai ahead of Emirates' afternoon European flights and its fourth daily flight to New York, a popular destination for Kenyan travellers," says Emirates.

Emirates reveals further that the flight will also provide 16 tons of additional cargo capacity on the route for Kenya's main export products such as flowers, fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as key imports such as mobile phones, pharmaceuticals and readymade garments, amongst others.
