With the introduction of the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on the Dubai <> Durban route, Emirates will boost the passenger capacity by close to 30% on the particular route.
The Boeing 777 offers the highest standards of passenger comfort, with eight luxurious private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat beds in Business Class and 304 generously-sized Economy Class seats.
Emirates is flying daily between its main hub in Dubai and Durban in South Africa. The flights depart Dubai at 1025hrs, arriving at King Shaka International Airport in Durban at 1710hrs and on its way back to Dubai the flights depart Durban at 1840hrs arriving in Dubai at 0520hrs the next day.
