(Posted 24th July 2015)
Come October 25th will Bamako, capital city of Mali, become Emirates’ 28th destination in Africa. The new destination will initially be served four times a week in conjunction with Dakar. Information sources indicated that the service will be operated using an Airbus A340-300. The three class cabin configuration on this aircraft offers 12 First Class seats, 42 business class seats and 213 economy class seats.
This sixth West African destination of Emirates joins a still growing network across Africa, which covers North, East, Central and Southern Africa, all destinations served with wide body aircraft, the only major airline in the world offering such a unique fleet composition.
In Eastern Africa does Emirates serve Nairobi and Dar es Salaam twice a day and Entebbe once a day while ‘junior cousin’ FlyDubai operates daily services into Entebbe and Dar es Salaam, from where some flights continue to Zanzibar, Kilimanjaro, Kigali and Bujumbura.
