Emirates embarks on African road tour

Emirates Airline is hitting the road in Africa in promotion of its ambitious expansion plans in the region.

The company has announced that it will be hosting events in Angola and South Africa ahead of the inaugural flights to both destinations later this year.

With an itinerary including more than a dozen towns and cities throughout South Africa, the company will be promoting its Emirates Holidays product offerings until August 23rd.

Meanwhile, in Angola the company is also promoting the launch of the Dubai-Luanda route, which is due to commence on October 25th.

Commenting on the promotional project, Nigel Page, Emirates' senior vice-president of commercial operations for the Americas & Africa, said: "With its burgeoning commercial activity and rapid development, we look forward to further exciting work on the continent, while at the same time playing our part in supporting Africa's economic growth."
