Emirates to widen European network


UGANDA (eTN) – A regular source at the Kampala office of Emirates – the airline is currently flying daily between Entebbe and Dubai – has confirmed, that travelers to Europe will have wider choices beginning next year.

The airline, according to the source, will begin to offer a B777 service between Dubai and Geneva in 2011, initially four times a week from June onwards, before going double daily to the Northern German port city of Hamburg from September 2011.

Emirates has in recent years established itself as a long distance connection airline with a convenient hub in Dubai, where the airline regularly offers free overnights to passengers wishing to stop over. With an expanding global network, almost every major airport on the 5 continents can now be reached by using Emirates, and with the arrival of more ordered aircraft, more destinations and frequencies can be expected to be announced.
