Emirates adds seats to Zambia and Zimbabwe


Emirates will enhance its on-board experience and increase capacity on its Zambia and Zimbabwe routes with the deployment of a larger Boeing 777-300ER aircraft from 1 February.

The Boeing 777-300ER will replace the current Airbus A340-300 and offer an additional 97 economy class seats per flight. The aircraft will have eight private suites in first class, 42 lie-flat seats in business class and 310 seats in economy class.                    

Popular destinations for both Zambian and Zimbabwean travellers include Dubai, London, Beijing, New York, Hong Kong, Manchester and Delhi, amongst others.

Emirates’ first class private suites have electrically operated doors to ensure privacy, a flat bed, mini-bar and work desk, while business class features sleeperettes. Across all cabins the aircraft is fitted with Emirates’ ICE entertainment system, which offers over 2,000 channels of on-demand audio and visual entertainment.
