The move to boost capacity by introducing a second A380 service between Dubai to Egypt was driven by consistently high passenger demand. The new A380 services to Cairo also demonstrate the airline’s commitment to adapting its operations to better serve customers.
Ibrahim Ghanim, Emirates Manager Egypt & Libya said: “The introduction of a second A380 service to Cairo means more of our customers will have the opportunity to experience our industry-leading products onboard, and will also enhance choice and travel preferences as they plan their journeys. Egypt has always been an important destination for Emirates, and we will continue to look at ways to grow our operations in the market to serve our customers better and safer.”
