Emirates has announced that it will up its flight frequency between Dubai and Cairo from 25 weekly flights to 28 weekly flights from 29 October 2023. 

Emirates will operate four daily flights to Cairo, with three daily flights on the A380 and a daily service on the Boeing 777. 

Flight EK921 will now operate daily, departing at 12:00 from Dubai to arrive at Cairo International Airport at 14:15. The return service on EK922 will depart from Cairo at 16:15 and arrive at 21:45 in Dubai.

Emirates’ additional A380 service to Cairo on EK925 will depart Dubai at 20:40 landing at 22:55. Flight EK926 will then depart Cairo, the following day at 00:40 and arrive in Dubai at 06:10.

Cairo has the highest deployment of Emirates A380 services in the MENA region, outside of Dubai. The additional 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.

Emirates started operations to Cairo in April 1986 with three flights a week and since then, operations have steadily grown with increases in both frequency and capacity between Cairo and Dubai to match customer demand.
