Emirates expands Sudan network

Khartoum flights increased to seven from 8 Aug 2017


In a bid to strengthen its presence in the African market, Emirates announced that it will increase frequency of flights between Dubai and Khartoum from five to seven a week.

The new increased frequency will commence from 8 August 2017. The airline will also operate a Boeing 777 on the additional services, offering passengers eight private suites in first class, 42 seats in business class and 304 seats in economy.

“Emirates’ decision to commit two additional scheduled flights a week is a clear indication of customer demand for our services. Our expanded schedule will provide customers with greater flexibility and allow more options to other flights on Emirates’ global network via our Dubai. These additional flights will also further support Sudan’s economy,” said Orhan Abbas, Emirates’ senior vice president, commercial operations Africa.

The airline will offer a total of over 700 additional seats each way per week. The two additional flights will operate on a Tuesday and Sunday as flight EK733, and will depart Dubai at 1435hrs and arrive in Khartoum at 1740hrs. The return flight, EK734, will depart Khartoum at 1950hrs and arrive in Dubai at 0100hrs the next morning.
