Emirates to add 22 extra flights as Eid Al-Fitr approaches
As Eid Al-Fitr approaches and more travelers plan to take to the skies, Emirates is responding by offering more flights across seven cities in the Gulf Cooperation Council and the Middle East. In an effort to expand its schedule, Emirates will deploy its A380 and Boeing 777 aircraft between 28 April and 8 May to the four cities it serves in KSA, as well as Kuwait, Beirut, and Amman.
In Saudi Arabia, Emirates will add two additional flights on 2nd and 8th May to meet demand in and out of Riyadh. The airline will add five Boeing 777 flights in Jeddah and upgrade one of its existing flights to an A380. There will be four additional flights to Medina during this time, and travelers from Dammam can also take advantage of one additional flight on 28 April. Emirates’ customers in Saudi Arabia will be celebrating Eid Al Fitr in Dubai this year, in addition to the Maldives, Paris, Bangkok, Mauritius, Manila, and Los Angeles in the USA.
