Making East Africa travel to US more comfortable

Emirates to go twice daily with A380 from Dubai to Big Apple

Wolfgang H. Thome, eTN  May 27, 2010

The local target="_blank">Emirates office has confirmed that effective October this year, the airline will operate their A380 sky giant twice a day between Dubai and New York’s JFK airport, making the journey from East Africa to the United States even more comfortable and pleasurable.

Emirates currently flies daily to Entebbe, via Addis Ababa, using a B777 aircraft, and other destinations like Nairobi are already on double daily flights, making it easy to connect either directly to the US or spend some time in Dubai for shopping or recreation.

Ugandan travelers have reportedly shifted loyalty again away from British Airways in view of the strike action, and one of the big beneficiaries in this market is Emirates, which connects East African travelers via their hub in Dubai to the rest of the world on a daily basis, using one of the most modern fleets of aircraft found anywhere.
