Emirates will be adding an extra flight to its service between Dubai and Algiers, the capital city of Algeria, upgrading it to a daily service from 13th December 2017.
The launch of the additional flight will complement Emirates’ current six-weekly service, and further boost inbound and outbound passenger traffic and cargo flows between Dubai and the north African country.
The new service will operate every Wednesday with an Emirates Boeing 777-300, in a three class configuration offering 8 seats in First Class, 42 in Business Class and 310 in Economy Class.
The new flight will depart Dubai as EK757 at 0810hrs and arrive in Algiers at 1240hrs. The return flight EK758 will depart Algiers at 1510hrs and arrive in Dubai at 0040hrs the next day.
Emirates first launched services to Algiers on 1st March 2013. In less than five years, the route has carried over half a million passengers and nearly 27,000 tonnes of cargo to date.
Algeria is home to a rich variety of architecture and a vibrant cultural scene with a diverse heritage of Phoenician, Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman and French influences. It boasts some of the world’s most spectacular coastlines as well as vast mountainous and desert landscapes.
