Emirates will offer more flights across the Middle East and the seven cities that make up the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) during the Eid al-Fitr holidays.
The airline announced in a press release that it is adding 23 flights and layering on additional seats with the deployment of both A380s and Boeing 777s between April 28, 2022 and May 8, 2022 to the four cities it serves in KSA, as well as to Kuwait, Beirut, and Amman.
According to Emirates, it will be adding two additional flights on May 2 to 8, 2022 to serve demand in and out of Riyadh. In Jeddah, the airline will add five flights served by its Boeing 777, and will upgrade one of its existing flights to an A380 to become an all A380 operation.
Medina will also be served with four additional flights during this time, and travelers from Dammam will have the option of one extra flight on April 28, 2022 as they start their holidays.
Meanwhile, popular destinations for Kuwaiti travelers this year include Dubai, the Maldives, Manila, Bangkok, London, Mauritius and Paris, and the airline will be operating eight additional flights served by its Boeing 777 during the Eid holidays.
Emirates will also be layering on three flights served by its Boeing 777s to the airline’s existing Beirut schedule to accommodate more travelers. Amman flights served by the airline’s Boeing 777 will also be upgraded with higher seat capacities.
Keeping with Eid traditions, and providing a touch of Middle Eastern hospitality, Emirates will be serving a specially crafted Eid menu for customers between May 2-6, 2022 for all GCC, Middle East and North Africa flights departing from and arriving to Dubai.
