Emirates expands Middle East flights
Emirates has announced that it will expand its regional operations in the Middle East with new flights to Amman, Riyadh and Jeddah, starting from next month.

The new services come shortly after the introduction of more flights serving Damascus brought into effect in December.

Making the announcement, Adnan Kazim, Emirates' senior vice-president of commercial operations for Gulf, Middle East and Iran, said: "The Dubai-based airline's presence in the Middle East has been on a consistent fast-track ever since the airline launched global operations in 1985."

Only 23 years after establishing its first regional service to Amman, the company now operates nearly 180 flights a week serving 14 destinations in the region.

Such news may well be of interest to those who are buying property in Dubai.

In other recent announcements, the company has also celebrated its clean flying initiatives with Australian partners, which has resulted in ten million litres of fuel savings over five years.ADNFCR-2019-ID-18970948-ADNFCR
