Posted 26 June 2016 · Add Comment

Emirates has announced that its service between Dubai and Dakar, currently operated by an Airbus A340-300, will be replaced with a Boeing 777-300ER from September 2, 2016.

The change to the larger Boeing 777-300ER aircraft will offer an enhanced onboard experience for Emirates’ Senegalese customers and those travelling to Dakar from across the airline’s network. The aircraft will be in a three class configuration with eight private suites in First Class, featuring automated sliding doors for privacy, personal mini-bar, and fully inclined seats; 42 lie flat seats in Business Class; and due to its bigger size, 310 spacious seats in Economy Class.
