From October 30, the additional flights mean that Emirates will fly six times a week to Tunis.
Services to Tunisia are operated by A330-200 aircraft in a three-class configuration, featuring 12 First Class seats, 42 seats in Business Class and 183 seats in Economy Class.
As a result, the increased services will add almost 3,800 seats per month in each direction, providing a welcome boost to tourism and economic growth in Tunisia.
Jean Luc Grillet, senior vice president of commercial operations for Africa, said: “Tunis is a significant market for Emirates and these additional flights are a testament to our growing presence in the market since we began operations to Tunisia five years ago.
“More services mean more flexibility and choice for our customers, enabling them to select the travel times which best suit them, as well as enabling easy connections to points across the Far and Middle East, Indian sub-continent, Europe and Australasia via the airline’s hub in Dubai.”
Flight EK747 will depart Dubai every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 09:05 hours, arriving in Tunis at 12:55 hours.
The return journey, flight EK 748, will depart Tunis at 14:30, arriving in Dubai at 22:55 hours.
