Emirates introduces Airbus A340-500 on Algiers route

Emirates, a global connector of people and places, strengthens its commitment to Algeria by introducing the Airbus A340-500 on the Dubai-Algiers route, commencing Dec. 1.
Boosting seat capacity by nearly 10 percent and offering an enhanced cabin product, Emirates’ Airbus A340-500 will replace the current A330-200 operating on flights EK757 and EK758.
“The upgrade of our Algiers service to an Airbus A340-500 is a clear marker of the route’s success since its launch less than one year ago, highlighting the strong growth potential of this destination,” said Adil Al-Ghaith, VP commercial operations for northern and western Africa. “Offering the highest standards of passenger comfort, our customers traveling to and from Algiers will now be able to enjoy the added in-flight features offered by this aircraft, including the private First Class suites and extended inflight entertainment options in all classes.”
Since its launch in March this year, Emirates has carried over 73,000 passengers between Dubai and Algiers, boosting international tourism to the capital of Algeria from destinations in the Middle East, Asian Subcontinent, Far East and Australasia.
The new aircraft has 258 seats in a three-class configuration offering 12 luxurious First Class suites, 42 seats in Business Class and generous space for 204 passengers in Economy Class.
First Class passengers will experience Emirates’ ergonomically-designed First Class suites, featuring privacy screens for maximum exclusivity and massage-enabled seats which convert into flat beds, while Business Class customers will enjoy the comfort of angled lie-flat beds.
Emirates also offers passengers very generous baggage allowances of 50 kg in First Class, 40 kg in Business Class, and 30 kg in Economy Class.
Emirates currently operates 208 aircraft to 137 destinations, including the world’s largest Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 fleet.
