Emirates will be able to connect even more people and cargo with Algiers from October 1 when it switches from an Airbus A340-300 to a larger Boeing 777-300 aircraft.
“In line with the healthy commercial demand, we are pleased to introduce our Boeing 777-300 aircraft on to our Algiers route, offering our customers more seats and an enhanced on-board experience,” says Adil Al Ghaith, svp commercial operations for Northern and Western Africa.
Emirates is confident the B777-300 service will raise the bar for travel experience in the Algerian market. “Our B777-300 will offer Emirates’ renowned cabin comforts and facilities, including our award-winning ICE entertainment system in every seat, luxurious seats in business and first class, and extra leg-room in economy class,” says Adil.
The increase in capacity will offer 97 additional economy-class seats per flight, a 45% increase. The number of premium cabin seats remains unchanged, offering customers a choice of 12 first-class flat-bed seats and 42 business-class seats.
On board, the ICE entertainment system offers up to 2 000 channels of on-demand entertainment at every seat; there are dedicated children’s menus and activities, and gourmet regionally inspired dishes with complimentary beverages, served by Emirates’ multi-lingual cabin crew, including Algerian nationals. The generous baggage allowance is 30kg for economy class; 40kg for business class and 50kg for first class.
