ALGIERS- Dubai carrier Emirates announced that it would increase the frequency of its services to Algiers with the addition of a new weekly flight. This service, effective as of 7 October, will complement Emirates’ existing operations between Dubai and Algiers, currently running at four flights per week.
Emirates will utilise its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft between Algiers and Dubai, and the newest service will operate on Friday, in addition to the airline’s flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Flight EK758 departs Algiers at 15:45hrs, arriving in Dubai at 01:05hrs the next day. EK757 departs Dubai at 08:45hrs, arriving in Algiers at 12:55hrs.
In addition to carrying more passengers, Emirates’ fifth weekly frequency between Dubai and Algeria will provide around 30-40 tonnes of cargo belly-hold capacity for businesses, further opening global trade lanes through enhanced import and export opportunities.
It is worth recalling that Emirates started operations to Algeria in 2013, and will be celebrating 10 years of serving the country early next year. Following the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic, the airline suspended services before resuming it in November 2021, and since then, has progressively built up the connectivity in response to growing customer demand and the easing of international travel protocols.
Tickets for flights in and out of Algeria can be booked, noteworthy, on emirates.com, the Emirates App, Emirates sales offices, via travel agents as well as online travel agents.
