Emirates, the national flag-carrier of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will extend its African network from 1st February 2012 by adding flights from its Dubai hub to Zambia's Kenneth Kaunda International Airport situated just 15 miles (24km) from Lusaka, and the Harare International Airport in Zimbabwe. This comes into addition as KLM commence direct flights between Amsterdam Schiphol and Lusaka, starting on 15th May 2012, giving the UK market a connecting transfer slightly more closer to home.
Travelling on Emirates, the two cities will be linked with the Dubai-Lusaka-Harare service, which will be serviced by an A330-200 aircraft in a three class configuration and fly five times a week. This is seen as a more cost-effective way of travelling to the two nations, with Emirates' notably low taxes & surcharges, with fares starting from approx £500. For more information on special introductory offers with these flights, contact us via phone or e-mail by 31st March 2012.
