Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Friday, 5 December 2008

Emirates is to double its services between Dubai and Lagos. The airline will increase its seven-times-a-week Lagos service to twice daily from 1 February 2009, further supporting trade in Nigeria and expanding channels of investment between the west African nation, the UAE and beyond.

The new flight, EK 781, will depart Dubai at 14:15 and arrive in Lagos at 19:55. The return flight, EK 782 will depart Lagos at 21:35 and arrive in Dubai at 07:35 the following day.

Under the revised schedule, the existing flight, EK783, will be brought forward slightly to depart Dubai at 07:35 and arrive in Lagos at the earlier time of 13:15, providing additional scope for afternoon business appointments. The return flight, EK784, will depart at 15:00 and arrive in Dubai at 01:00 the following day.

Salem Obaidalla, Emirates' Senior Vice President, Africa, West Asia & Indian Ocean, said, "This is an exciting new development for Emirates in Africa, just four years after we started services to Lagos. Africa is one of the world's trading powerhouses and Emirates is supporting that commercial activity. We are seeing clear demand for more flights and that is what we are delivering. At the same time, we are improving two-way connectivity between a host of places, particularly Bahrain, Doha, Muscat, the Indian Subcontinent, East Asia and Australasia."

The Lagos route is currently served by a Boeing 777-300ER, offering 12 seats in First Class, 42 in Business and 304 in Economy. The new service will also be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER, offering a slightly enhanced capacity of 12 First, 42 Business and 310 Economy Class seats.
