KARACHI: Emirates will be stepping up its Ramazan offerings to passengers and its flight offerings for Umrah. The airline will operate 42 additional flights, serviced by the Boeing 777, between Dubai and Jeddah from June 18 to July 23. From July 24 to August 15, Emirates will operate an additional 11 flights to Jeddah. Emirates’ additional flight offerings will help accommodate the two million visitors expected to travel to Mecca during the Holy Month this year. These services will run in parallel with Emirates’ regularly scheduled services to Jeddah, operated by a mix of A380s and Boeing 777 aircraft. The additional services can be accessed by travellers holding a valid Umrah visa, except for GCC nationals.
