Emirates says to upgrade services on Khartoum route

Emirates airline is set to upgrade its service between Dubai and Khartoum with the deployment of a larger Boeing 777-300ER on the route from September 1.

The Boeing 777 will replace the current Airbus A340-300 and offer travellers on the route an enhanced on-board product experience and additional seats in Economy Class, the airline said in a statement.

Enhancements include an updated ice entertainment system with larger TV screens across all three cabin classes, it said.

It added that the aircraft also has eight private suites in First Class with automated sliding doors for privacy, 42 lie flat seats in Business Class and 310 seats in Economy Class - nearly 100 seats more than the A340-300.

Emirates flies four times a week between Khartoum and Dubai with Emirates flight EK733 departing Dubai every Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
