KENYA TOURISM GETS MASSIVE BOOST AS EMIRATES UPS DAILY FLIGHTS TO THREE
(Posted 19th January 2017)
Come June will Emirates, Dubai’s award winning airline, increase their daily flights from presently two a day to three a day. The third flight too will be operated with a Boeing B777-300ER in a three class configuration, offering 8 First Class suites, 42 flat bed business class seats and 304 seats in economy class.
The airline’s first flight out of Dubai will leave at 01.40 hrs a.m. followed by a 10.25 hrs a.m. departure before the third daily flight will take off from DXB at 16.00 hrs p.m. offering more or less instant connectivity to Nairobi from all Emirates services landing on a given day. Return flights out of Nairobi into Dubai are also timed that passengers can reach any point in the Emirates network with a relatively short stopover at DXB, made even more comfortable as the airline has now made it possible for qualifying economy class passengers to access their lounges against payment of a nominal fee.Besides Nairobi does Emirates also serve Entebbe and Dar es Salaam with daily flights, giving East Africa’s main aviation hubs a total of five daily flights out of Dubai.
