Emirates airline unveils secret plan for travelers in 2022
Goodnews to travelers
Emirates airline announces goodnews for new travelers
Emirates airlines posted a $5.5 billion loss in the previous year. The world’s largest long haul carrier said revenue jumped 91% to $16.1 billion dollars, as travel lockdowns eased and the airline added capacity.
“2021-22 was largely about recovery, after the toughest year in our Group’s history,” Emirates Group Chairman and Chief Executive Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum said in a statement on Friday.
The airline had resumed flights to 140 destinations by the end of March, but the surge in fuel prices — up more than 50% so far this year — continues to challenge the pandemic-battered aviation sector. Emirates said its fuel bill more than doubled to $3.8 billion dollars as the price of oil and jet fuel soared in recent quarters.
“It’s very difficult to establish where that price will stop, or how far it might go down,” Sheikh Ahmed told CNBC in an interview on Tuesday when asked about the price of fuel. “That’s really affecting the airline business in a big way,” he added, saying geopolitics and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was having a significant impact on fuel prices.
Emirates will utilize its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft between Algiers and Dubai, and the new flights will operate on Saturdays and Sundays, in addition to the current Tuesday and Thursday services.
Flight EK758 departs Algiers at 3.45pm, arriving in Dubai at 1.05am the next day. EK757 departs Dubai at 8.45am, arriving in Algiers at 12.55pm.
Omar Alhemeiri – Manager Algeria, said: “We have seen a marked increase in passenger demand to and from Algiers, especially to Dubai and onwards to other destinations that are gradually opening or easing their restrictions across our network.
We hope that by increasing our frequency into Algeria, we are able to support traffic flows in and out of the country as it continues its post-pandemic economic recovery, and it is also a testament to our commitment to Algeria.”
Tickets can be purchased on the carrier’s website, at its sales office, via travel agents or through online travel agents.
Customers are encouraged to check the latest government travel restrictions in their country of origin to ensure they meet the travel requirements of their final destination.
