Kampala: Emirates has announced a seasonal frequency increase for its flights between Dubai and Entebbe, adding three additional flights a week to its existing once daily service, effective from 05 July 2019 to 15 September 2019. This is in response to the growing demand for travel during this period.
The three new flights operating on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class cabin configuration, offering 8 seats in First Class, 42 in Business Class and 306 specially designed contoured seats in Economy Class.
Emirates’ Boeing 777-300ER offers First Class passengers a private suite, seats that recline to a full-flat bed and a personal electrically-controlled mini-bar. Features also include touch screen Wireless Integrated Passenger Seat Controllers for Emirates’ In-flight Entertainment (ice) and seat functions, as well a 32” HD LCD screen. With electrically-operated privacy dividers, First Class suites offer passengers maximum exclusivity – even from an adjoining suite.
The additional Dubai – Entebbe flight EK731 will leave Dubai at 01:15hrs and will arrive in Entebbe at 05:45hrs. The return flight, EK732, will depart Entebbe at 07:15hrs and will arrive in Dubai at 13:45hrs. The new flights will enhance connectivity to most cities in Asia, the Americas and Australia including Beijing, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Sydney, Shanghai, New Delhi, Mumbai, New York and Washington DC.

Emirates started operations to Entebbe in March 2000, with three flights a week linked with Nairobi, and later with Addis Abba, until it was delinked in 2007 and became a direct daily service between Dubai and Entebbe. Operations have steadily grown with increases in both frequency and capacity between Entebbe and Dubai to match customer demand.
