EMIRATES PLANS TO ADD 23 EXTRA FLIGHTS FOR EID AL FITR.

With Eid Al Fitr approaching and more travellers expecting to travel by air, Emirates is reacting by expanding its aircraft network across seven GCC and Middle Eastern locations.

With the deployment of both A380s and Boeing 777s between April 28 and May 8, the airline is stepping up its schedule by adding 23 flights and layering on more seats to the four destinations it serves in Saudi Arabia, as well as Kuwait, Beirut, and Amman.

Emirates will add two additional flights to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on the 2nd and 8th of May to meet demand in and out of Riyadh. In Jeddah, the airline will add five Boeing 777 flights and upgrade one of its existing flights to an A380, making the carrier an all-A380 operation. During this time, four additional flights will be available to Medina, and tourists from Dammam will have the option of taking an additional flight on April 28th as they begin their vacation. This year, Emirates customers in Saudi Arabia will travel to Dubai, as well as the Maldives, Paris, Bangkok, Mauritius, Manila, and Los Angeles in the United States, to celebrate Eid Al Fitr.

Dubai, the Maldives, Manila, Bangkok, London, Mauritius, and Paris are among the most popular locations for Kuwaiti travellers this year, and Emirates will operate eight additional Boeing 777 flights during Eid.

Emirates will add three Boeing 777 flights to its existing Beirut schedule to accommodate additional travellers returning home to see friends and families. Flights from Amman on the Boeing 777 will be upgraded as well, with more seats available.

Special Emirates Holidays packages are also available, with selected experiences, hotel stays, and more to suit every choice and taste.

Between the 2nd and 5th of May, all GCC, Middle East, and North Africa aircraft departing from and arriving in Dubai will serve a specially prepared Eid menu for customers, in keeping with Eid traditions and delivering a touch of Middle Eastern hospitality.
