Meeting Point Emirates makes Germany more accessible


Meeting Point Emirates welcomed its first arrivals from Leipzig to Al Maktoum Airport (DWC). This is in line with its distinctive charter program which is the first and only service that will fly from the German speaking market to Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC) 365 days of the year.

The flight program is set to complement Emirates’ high-end product that is currently offered from Vienna, Zurich, Geneva, Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin and Hamburg.

The flight program includes daily, year-round direct flights and departs on a weekly basis from Leipzig, Hannover, Cologne, Munich and Stuttgart. In winter weekly flights are scheduled from Berlin and Basel, while in summer weekly flights are scheduled from Nuremburg and Dresden. This initiative makes Dubai directly accessible from most of these cities for the first time, hence, opening up new potential travellers to Dubai.

Khaled Jouni, CEO Meeting Point International said: “We will be adding over 100,000 arrivals per year from the German speaking market and are certain to have a positive augmentation on the destination and our local hotel partners alike.”

He further added: “A substantial increase in volume of guests to the UAE compared to last year was the trigger that encouraged FTI GROUP and Meeting Point Emirates to go with a joint venture investment.“

The connections to Al Maktoum Airport (DWC) complements FTI Group’s current offering with Emirates Airlines and are carried by Condor on a Boeing B757-300 aircraft and offer value-for-money packages that include airline tickets of economy or premium seats and six to 13-night hotel stays.
