Emirates’ Middle East operations will receive a boost this August as the carrier increases daily capacity by almost 29% to both Kuwait and Doha.
Operations to Doha will now have six services per day and flights to Kuwait will rise to five per day.
Both cities play a key role in Middle Eastern business growth, attracting international investors and facilitating a global trade. With 46,430 seats available in and out of the conurbations each week, Emirates’ extra flights will support accelerated trade and tourism growth.
Ahmed Khoory, Emirates’ Senior Vice President Commercial Operations for Gulf, Middle East and Iran, commented: “These additional frequencies have been added to accommodate increasing demand from our customers. Both Doha and Kuwait are extremely viable markets for Emirates and there is a clear indication that they will continue to grow exponentially in the coming years.”
The additional daily service to Doha will be operated by an Airbus 340-300 in a three-class configuration. The Kuwait operation will utilise a Boeing 777-300ER, also in a three-class configuration.
