Due to the impending holiday of Eid Al Fitr, and the increased number of travelers wanting to travel by air, Emirates is expanding its flight schedule across seven destinations in the Gulf Cooperation Council and the Middle East. During the period of 28 April to 8 May, the airline will expand its schedule by adding 23 flights and piling on more seats with the deployment of both A380s and Boeing 777s to the four destinations it serves in Saudi Arabia as well as Kuwait, Beirut, and Amman.
Emirates will add two extra flights to and from Riyadh on the 2nd and 8th of May in order to meet the increased demand in and out of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In Jeddah, the airline will increase the number of flights serviced by its Boeing 777 aircraft by five, and it will upgrade one of its current flights to an A380, making the airport an all-A380 operation. During this time period, four more flights will be available to Medina, while tourists from Dammam will have the option of taking one additional trip on the 28th of April to begin their vacation on a high note.
Customers from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will travel to Dubai for Eid Al Fitr festivities this year, as well as to the Maldives, Paris, Bangkok, Mauritius, Manila, and Los Angeles in the United States, according to Emirates.
Dubai, the Maldives, Manila, Bangkok, London, Mauritius, and Paris are among the most popular destinations for Kuwaiti tourists this year, and Emirates will operate eight more flights operated by its Boeing 777 during Eid.
Emirates will add three more flights serviced by Boeing 777s to its current Beirut schedule in order to accommodate more tourists returning home to see friends and family over the holiday season. Amman flights operated by the Boeing 777 aircraft will also be updated to accommodate more passengers.
Also available are customized Emirates Holidays packages, which include specially selected activities and hotel accommodations to suit every traveler’s desire and taste.
