LONDON – UAE flag carrier Emirates has plans to boost its operations to and from Cairo to 28 weekly flights, effective 29 October, 2023.
The additional flights provide more options for customers to connect to Dubai and beyond with enhanced schedules and the opportunity to enjoy more of the Emirates A380’s signature experience.

The operational boost will see Emirates operating four daily flights, thrice daily on the Airbus A380 and a daily service on the Boeing 777. Cairo has the highest deployment of Emirates A380 services in the MENA region, outside of Dubai.
The additional services and upgrade of seat capacity on the Dubai-Cairo route will help meet high demand to and from Cairo and support the country’s tourism revival with the addition of more than 2,200 weekly seats in each direction.
EK921 will now operate daily, departing at 1200hrs from Dubai to arrive at Cairo International Airport at 1415hrs. The return service EK922 will depart from Cairo at 1615hrs, to arrive at 2145hrs in Dubai.
Emirates’ third A380 service to Cairo, EK925 will depart Dubai at 20:40hrs landing at 22:55hrs. EK926 will then depart Cairo, the following day at 00:40 hrs, to arrive in Dubai at 06:10hrs.
The airline prides itself on what it refers to as the “A380 experience”. The aircraft remains highly sought after by travellers for its spacious and comfortable cabins, and range of signature products.
In-flight services include the Onboard Lounge, First Class suites and Shower Spa. The airline currently deploys its flagship A380 to 41 destinations worldwide.
The modern Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration on flights to Cairo also offers a range of industry-leading products, with private suites in First Class, lie flat seats in Business Class and spacious seats in Economy Class.
In addition, the Emirates’ ice inflight entertainment system provides over 5,000 channels of on-demand movies, music, TV shows, box sets and documentaries, in over 40 languages, including an extensive selection of content.
