Sana’a: Marking its 16 years of operations in Yemen, Emirates has introduced an additional weekly flight to Sana’a. Effective October 28, Yemen is now a daily service from Dubai. The airline launched services to the Yemeni capital on October 28, 1996, beginning with two weekly flights. The route is currently supported with an Airbus A330-200 aircraft in a three-class configuration. Emirates flight 961 leaves Dubai daily at 0715 hours and arrives in Sana’a at 0900 hrs. The return flight, EK962, leaves Sana’a at 1015 hours and lands in Dubai at 1345 hours . The additional frequency will also provide more flexibility for passengers from Yemen to Dubai and onwards to popular destinations such as China, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, France, the United Kingdom and the United States. The seventh weekly flight enables Emirates SkyCargo to offer additional capacity in the belly-hold of aircraft for Yemen’s exports, such as seafood.
