From July 5 2019 to September 15, Emirates, is set to increase its frequency to Entebbe with three additional flights a week.
The introduction of the extra flights is in response to increase in passenger traffic from Entebbe to Emirates’ global destinations such as Dubai, London, New York, Beijing and Guangzhou.
Currently, the airline operates daily Entebbe – Dubai flights to over 150 destinations via its Dubai hub.
The three additional weekly flights will operate on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, flight EK731 will leave Dubai at 01:15hrs and will arrive in Entebbe at 05:45hrs. The return flight, EK732, will depart Entebbe at 07:15hrs and will arrive in Dubai at 13:45hrs.
John Gemin, Emirates Country Manager, Uganda says; “Uganda is an important market for Emirates, in a region that has registered significant growth.
“From April 2018 to March 2019 Emirates carried over 90,000 passengers between Entebbe and Dubai, and we are committed to facilitating trade, tourism and cargo exports in the years to come. Our customers have come to expect the high standard of product and service we offer, and the increased flights will offer them greater flexibility to connect to their favourite destinations,” he said.
Emirates started operations to Entebbe in March 2000, with three flights a week linked with Nairobi, and later with Addis Abba, until it was delinked in 2007 and became a direct daily service between Dubai and Entebbe. Operations have steadily grown with increases in both frequency and capacity between Entebbe and Dubai to match customer demand.
