Emirates expands Harare-Lusaka-Dubai route


Emirates Airlines has announced it will increase flight frequency on the Harare-Lusaka-Dubai route due to growing demand.

Starting on June 5, the carrier will operate five flights – up one from the current four per week.

Last month, the airline also adjusted its flight schedule, moving to Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday departures, with a Saturday flight added from June 5.

Emirates Airlines has been operating flights to Zimbabwe for over nine years.

“The linked service between Harare and Lusaka to Dubai will provide travellers with more flexibility and convenience of travel to over 90 destinations on the Emirates network, including its hub and popular global destination, Dubai,” Emirates said in a statement.

Emirates’s Boeing 777-300ER aircraft will be used between Harare, Lusaka and Dubai.

“We look forward to boosting our services further to provide better travel options for our customers as they take to the skies again,” said Nasser Bahlooq, Emirates country manager for Zimbabwe.
