Emirates’ First Class Suite Debuts on Durban Route
Emirates has introduced its First-Class cabin on Durban route, in conjunction with addition of four flights per week, bringing the airline’s luxury travel experience to the coastal South African city.
During the seasonal increase from 14 June to 4 August 2019, travellers to and from Durban can enjoy the Emirates’ First Class cabins on the airline’s Boeing 777-300ER.
The aircraft will operate the additional flights in a three-class cabin configuration, offering eight seats in First Class, 42 in Business Class and 310 spacious seats in Economy Class.
The First Class cabin features private suites, electrically-controlled mini-bar, Wireless Integrated Passenger Seat Controllers for Emirates’ in-flight entertainment (ice) and seat functions, as well as a 32” HD LCD screen.
With electrically-operated privacy dividers, the Emirates First Class suites offer passengers maximum exclusivity – even from an adjoining suite.
First Class passengers can indulge in luxuries like Voya skincare products, as well as the world’s first moisturising sleepwear and amenity kit bags designed exclusively by Bulgari.
From June, Emirates has also launched a new menu on this route; which consists of some local specialities in all classes to showcase the diverse culture and strong Indian influence from the city of Durban.
Some of the dishes include Durban classic Lamb Bunny Chow with traditional garnishes, Peri Peri chicken with sweet potato carpaccio and Tandoori prawns with spiced pineapple salad and curry mayonnaise.
