Emirates has announced a seasonal increase to its existing daily service to Durban - with four additional flights a week - effective from 14 June to 04 August 2019.

This is in response to growing demand for travel during this period. The airline says it will also be introducing its award-winning First Class experience on the additional flights. 

The additional flights will take place on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. From 14 June 2019 until 04 August 2019, B777 flight EK760 will depart Durban at 14:20hrs and arrive in Dubai at 00:40hrs, while the return B777 flight, EK 759 will leave Dubai at 03:20hrs, arriving in Durban at 09:45hrs.  

It will be operated by a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class cabin configuration - offering eight seats in First Class, 42 in Business Class and 310 spacious seats in Economy Class.

The First Class passengers experience includes a private suite, seats that recline to a full-flat bed and a personal electrically-controlled mini-bar. Features also include touch screen Wireless Integrated Passenger Seat Controllers for Emirates’ In-flight Entertainment (ice) and seat functions, as well a 32”HD LCD screen.

With electrically-operated privacy dividers, for maximum exclusivity – even from an adjoining suite.
