Emirates has announced that starting from October 29, 2023, it will increase its flights to and from Cairo to 28 weekly flights. This move will provide more choices for customers who want to connect to Dubai and beyond, and they will also have the chance to enjoy Emirates A380’s renowned experience.

The operational boost means that Emirates will have four flights every day, with three daily services on the A380 and one on the Boeing 777. Cairo has the second-highest deployment of Emirates A380 services in the MENA region, after Dubai.

This additional service and increased seating capacity on the Dubai-Cairo route will meet the high demand to and from Cairo and support the country’s tourism industry, providing more than 2,200 seats in each direction every week.

The flight schedule will be as follows: EK921 will depart from Dubai at 1200hrs and arrive at Cairo International Airport at 1415hrs, operating every day. The return service, EK922, will depart from Cairo at 1615hrs and arrive at 2145hrs in Dubai.

Travellers highly seek the Emirates A380 experience for its spacious and comfortable cabins, along with signature features like the Onboard Lounge, First Class suites, and Shower Spa that provide the best in-flight experiences. Currently, Emirates deploys its flagship A380 to 41 destinations worldwide.

On flights to Cairo, the modern Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration offer Emirates’ award-winning service and industry-leading products, including private suites in First Class, lie-flat seats in Business Class, and spacious seats in Economy Class.

Customers can relish the world-class service and products, such as ice, Emirates’ in-flight entertainment system with over 5,000 channels of on-demand movies, TV shows, music, box sets, and documentaries in more than 40 languages, featuring an extensive selection of content in Arabic, including classic and new Egyptian movies and TV shows and the best of Egyptian music. All classes can also savour delicious multi-course meals prepared by award-winning chefs on the flight.

Emirates commenced operations to Cairo in April 1986 with three weekly flights and has since carried 9.6 million passengers to and from Cairo. Operations have gradually grown with an increase in both frequency and capacity between Cairo and Dubai to meet the customers’ demands.

Presently, Emirates operates 25 weekly flights between Cairo and Dubai, and in the last 30 years, the airline has made a significant contribution to the local economy and tourism by transporting visitors from across its global network that spans six continents.
