Emirates has announced that it will be increasing its flights to Cairo, Egypt, starting October 29, 2021. The boost in operations will result in 28 weekly flights, offering passengers more options to connect to Dubai and enjoy the Emirates A380 experience.

The additional services and upgraded seat capacity will help meet the high demand to and from Cairo and support the country’s tourism revival with the addition of more than 2,200 weekly seats in each direction.

Emirates will now operate four daily flights between Cairo and Dubai, with three daily flights on the A380 and one daily service on the Boeing 777. Cairo has the highest deployment of Emirates A380 services in the Middle East North Africa (MENA region), outside of Dubai.

The third A380 service to Cairo, EK925, will depart Dubai at 20:40hrs and land in Cairo at 22:55hrs. EK926 will then depart Cairo the following day at 00:40hrs to arrive in Dubai at 06:10hrs. The daily service, EK921, will depart from Dubai at 1200hrs to arrive in Cairo International Airport at 1415hrs. The return service, EK922, will depart from Cairo at 1615hrs to arrive in Dubai at 2145hrs.

Emirates A380 remains highly sought after by travelers for its spacious and comfortable cabins, signature products such as the Onboard Lounge, First Class suites, and Shower Spa. The airline currently deploys its flagship A380 to 41 destinations worldwide.

In addition, Emirates’ modern Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration on flights to Cairo will offer its award-winning service and industry-leading products, including private suites in First Class, lie-flat seats in Business Class, and spacious seats in Economy Class.

Passengers can enjoy the world-class service and products offered by Emirates on board, including its inflight entertainment system with over 5,000 channels of on-demand movies, music, TV shows, box sets, and documentaries, in over 40 languages, including an extensive selection of content in Arabic. Guests in all classes can also enjoy delicious multi-course meals prepared by award-winning chefs on the flight.

Emirates started operations in Cairo in April 1986 with three weekly flights and has since carried 9.6 million passengers to and from Cairo. Operations have steadily grown with increases in both frequency and capacity between Cairo and Dubai to match customer demand.

Currently, Emirates operates 25 weekly flights between Cairo and Dubai. Over the last three decades, the airline has made an important contribution to the local economy and tourism by flying in visitors from across its global network spanning six continents.

In Africa, Cairo to Dubai was among the top three routes with the number of seats at 123,408 seats according to OAG.

The increase in flights to Cairo by Emirates is a testament to the airline’s commitment to providing its passengers with more options and greater convenience while supporting the revival of the tourism industry in Egypt. Passengers can look forward to a seamless travel experience with Emirates’ world-class service and state-of-the-art aircraft.
