Emirates extensive African network is to be boosted again with the launch of two new destinations – Lusaka, the capital of Zambia, and Harare, the capital city of Zimbabwe. Zambia and Zimbabwe, which share a border with the Victoria Falls, one of the natural wonders of the world, will now be linked with a five times weekly flight from Dubai, starting from 1 February 2012.
The Dubai – Lusaka – Harare service will be 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.
The new route should work very well for Emirates feeding into its hub at Dubai. From the UK, Emirates operates 105 flights per week to Dubai, where passengers can take a convenient onward connection to Zambia and Zimbabwe. The airline flies five times a day from Heathrow, three times daily from Gatwick and Manchester, double daily from Birmingham and daily from Newcastle and Glasgow. www.emirates.com
