Emirates boosts flight volumes

Emirates Airline is preparing to introduce nine additional services between Beirut and Dubai ahead of the seasonal rise in passenger numbers seen as expats throughout the Middle East return home during August.

In a statement today (July 28th) the Dubai-based airline said that the new services will support demand during what is one of the company's busiest months of the year.

"These flights will give our customers more flexibility and choice of travel dates and flight timings," said Khalid bel Jaflah, Emirates vice-president of commercial operations for the UAE.

Such flexibility may be of interest to Lebanese investors who are travelling to view property for sale in Dubai.

Meanwhile, Emiratis are expected to take full advantage of the expanded services as they head to Lebanon, which has long been a popular summer holiday destination with tourists across the Middle East.

Emirates has also recently announced that it has invested AED230 million in new lounge services at the OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, accommodating the growing number of South Africans flying with the carrier.ADNFCR-2019-ID-19285524-ADNFCR
