 As with all Emirates flights, customers will be served by a highly trained and extremely professional multi-national cabin crew from 130 countries, including South Africans.

The aircraft also features Emiratesí ice entertainment system, offering up to 2,500 channels of on demand movies, television programmes, music, audio books and music.

In Cape Town, Emirates also offers First Class and Business Class customers a complimentary chauffeur drive service, as well as a dedicated and brand new luxury lounge facility at the airport, which Platinum and Gold members of its Frequent Flyer Programme, Skywards, can also enjoy.

The added frequency also provides up to 23 tonnes of cargo capacity on the aircraft per flight, giving businesses and traders opportunities for increased imports and exports.
