Emirates to resume flights to Johannesburg, boosts global network to 92 destinations

Emirates has announced it will resume flights to Johannesburg, Cape Town (October 1), and Durban (October 4) in South Africa. Plus, Harare in Zimbabwe (October 1) and Mauritius (October 3).

The addition of the five points will expand the Emirates’ global network to 92 destinations, as the airline gradually resumes its operations. Emirates’ African network will also now extend to 19 cities.

Customers flying in and out of Emirates’ three South African gateways can travel to Dubai and to an array of onwards connections in Europe, the Far East, Middle East, West Asia and Australasia. Flight schedules for Emirates’ South African destinations will be available on emirates.com later this week.

Emirates will operate to Harare with two weekly flights linked to its Lusaka service. The linked services will connect Zambia and Zimbabwe to key destinations across Europe, the Far East, the Americas, Australasia and West Asia with one convenient stop in Dubai.

Flights from Dubai to Mauritius will initially operate once a week on Saturdays, supporting the Mauritian government’s repatriation efforts to bring its citizens home, and enabling the recovery of the country’s tourism industry.
