Emirates’ A340-500 aircraft offers 12 First Class Suites, 42 Business class and 204 Economy class seats, alongside 15 tonnes of cargo-carrying capacity.

“Demand for our services to Libya has been steadily building so the addition of the A340-500 will not only increase capacity but will also enhance the customer experience when travelling on this route,” said Haitham Al Battawy, Emirates Manager Libya. “The aircraft addition will also offer travellers from North African markets seamless connections to the Far East, the GCC, the Indian subcontinent and Australian destinations via Emirates Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport, designed for optimum travelling comfort.”
