The flag carrier of the United Arab Emirates, Emirates, is currently (since 01 Feb 2012) operating five weekly flights between its main hub in Dubai and Lusaka in Zambia and Harare in Zimbabwe. Due to a good load factor and a rising demand on the route between the three destinations as well as a "testament to the continuous upward growth in demand for our flights to and from the continent" (Jean Luc Grillet, Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations for Africa), the airline will introduce daily flights to Lusaka and Harare on 01 Oct 2012.
The Dubai-Lusaka-Harare service is operated by an A330-200 aircraft in a three-class configuration that offers 12 luxurious First Class seats, 42 seats in Business Class and generous space for 183 passengers in Economy Class.
