Travel Demand: Emirates Increases Abuja Service to Daily
As part of adjustments to its operational schedules in 2019 and to respond to travel demand trends, Emirates will step up services to Abuja with additional flights.
From 1st June, 2019, the airline will operate three additional flights to Abuja increasing the service to daily. The extra flights will be operated using a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
The new service flight EK786 will depart Dubai every day at 10:40hrs and arrive Abuja at 14:55hrs. The return flight EK785 will leave Abuja same day at 18:10hrs.
With these developments, Nigerians travelling ‘to’ or ‘from’ any of these cities, can benefit from it, and have their trips at their own comfort.
Emirates will also deploy additional flights to several markets in Africa starting in June 2019. The additional services will satisfy the increased demand that the airline has witnessed in Africa.
From 1 June, 2019, Emirates will introduce second daily service to Casablanca, Guinea and Dakar. Similarly, from June 2nd 2019, second daily flight will be introduced to Accra, Ghana.
Between March 31 and October 2019, second daily flight will be introduced to Athens, Greece; three daily flights to Rome, Italy; while daily service will begin once again to Zagreb, Croatia.
