Emirates upgrade to Boeing 777-200
Emirates Airline has upgraded its aircraft from operating on the Malta-Cyprus-Dubai route to a larger Boeing 777-200 offering a total of 274 seats in a 3-class configuration with 12 First, 42 Business and 220 Economy Class.
The Boeing 777-200 is replacing the Airbus 340-300 aircraft which was deployed on October 1, 2012. Emirates started its operations to Malta in 1998, connecting the Maltese islands to new and key destinations across the world and currently operate a daily schedule from Dubai to Malta via Larnaca, Cyprus, with an option of stopping in Cyprus.
Emirates Manager for Malta Paul Fleri Soler said this is the second aircraft upgrade within four months and confirms Emirates commitment to the Maltese islands. The Boeing 777-200 aircraft will provide customers with the award-winning ice inflight entertainment on every seat, world-class service and gourmet cuisine, making the journey with Emirates as enjoyable as the destination while the additional capacity will generate many more trade and tourism opportunities.
First and Business Class clients can enjoy Emirates’ service before they take to the sky with chauffeur-driven transfers from Malta and Gozo, as well as on arrival at most of Emirates destinations. Other special privileges include dedicated check-in areas, a generous 40kg baggage allowance, and exclusive access to the Emirates Lounges at major airports, including Emirates Terminal 3 in Dubai.
Emirates SkyCargo will be increasing its belly-hold capacity to 17 tonnes on the Boeing 777-200 and is on hand in assisting importers and exporters.
