Emirates is responding to strong passenger demand in Sudan by launching an extra weekly flight to Khartoum, boosting its frequencies to four each week from 4th August 2011.
Operated by A330-200 aircraft in a three-class configuration that includes 12 luxurious First Class seats, 42 seats in Business Class and generous space for 183 passengers in Economy Class, the additional flight will add over 950 seats per month in each direction, and contribute significantly to economic and tourism growth in Sudan.
"This additional service will offer customers greater flexibility in choosing their travel times as well as help support further business and tourism opportunities in Sudan," said Jean Luc Grillet, Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations for Africa.
The additional weekly flight, EK733, will depart Dubai every Thursday at 14:35 hours, arriving in Khartoum at 17:40 hours. The return journey, flight EK 734, will depart Khartoum at 19:15, arriving in Dubai at 00:15 hours.
