More Emirates Airlines Flights To Angola & South Africa
Emirates Airlines, the national air carrier of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has plans for increasing the number of its flights to Angola and South Africa by the end of this year. The company will organise promotional activities in both the countries ahead of the launch.
Flights to the South African city of Durban are scheduled to start on Oct 1, while new services to the Angolan capital of Luanda are scheduled to begin by Oct 25. The launch of flights to Durban will supplement the daily services to Cape Town and Johannesburg.
Despite the current economic crisis, the Emirates has witnessed an increase in its annual sales. South Africa is one of the strongest performing markets.
John Felix, senior vice president, Emirates Holidays, said: "South Africa is one of our top revenue markets and its important for us to get out there and reinforce our brand presence. It's also an opportunity for us to build relationship, make new contacts and fine-tune our products based on market feedback so we can ensure that our customers are getting the very best service and value for money."
"A road show of this size is particularly significant in these tougher economic times and very much demonstrates our commitment to the industry, our partners and our clients," he added.
