Emirates is set to increase capacity on its Zambia and Zimbabwe route from February 1 with the deployment of a larger Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
The Boeing 777-300ER will replace the Airbus A340-300 and offer an additional 97 economy-class seats per flight. The aircraft will have eight private suites in first class, 42 lie-flat seats in business class and 310 seats in economy class.
“At Emirates, we are constantly seeking ways to enhance our services, and the upgauge to the Boeing 777-300ER on the Lusaka-Harare route is part of our commitment to offer travellers even more comfort and entertainment on our daily service,” said Orhan Abbas, Emirates Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Latin America, Central and Southern Africa.
The service departs Dubai every day at 09h25 and arrives in Lusaka at 14h40. The flight then departs Lusaka at 16h10, arriving in Harare at 17h15. The return flight leaves Harare at 18h50 and arrives in Lusaka at 19h55. The flight then departs Lusaka at 21h40 and lands in Dubai at 06h50 the next day.
