Emirates has announced plans to add an extra flight to its service between Dubai and Algiers, making it a daily service from December 13.
The launch of the additional flight will complement Emirates’ current six flights a week, and further boost inbound and outbound passenger traffic and cargo flows between Algeria and Dubai, and Emirates’ worldwide network, the airline said in a statement.
The new service will operate every Wednesday with an Emirates Boeing 777-300, in a three class configuration offering 8 seats in First Class, 42 in Business Class and 310 in Economy Class, it added.
“In line with healthy commercial demand, we are pleased to introduce an additional service to Algiers which will offer our customers even more choice and convenience to connect to Dubai and onward destinations particularly in the Middle East, Far East, West Asia, Indian Ocean and Australia,” said Orhan Abbas, Emirates senior vice-president Commercial Operations for Africa.
“Algeria will become the fourth destination in north Africa to have a daily frequency, along with Casablanca, Tunis and Khartoum.”
Emirates launched services to Algiers in March 2013. In less than five years, the route has carried over half a million passengers and nearly 27,000 tonnes of cargo to date.
