Emirates re-affirms commitment to the West African region
Emirates, the Dubai-based international airline, re-affirmed its commitment to the West African region with the announcement of a significant increase in services later this year. From 1st October, the airline will increase its flights to Lagos and Accra to a daily service and, from 1st December, Emirates will operate dedicated non-stop flights to both Lagos and Accra on a daily basis.
These increases, which are being announced just 15 months after the start of Emirates’ services to Lagos and Accra, reflect the phenomenal success of the route to date.
The award-winning airline currently operates six weekly flights to Lagos and Accra, and the addition of the seventh weekly flight will represent an increase of 10 per cent in passenger and 15 per cent in cargo carrying capacity.
