Dubai: Emirates said on Thursday it will add more than 1,400 seats a week on its Dar es Salaam–Dubai route by introducing a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft effective from February 1.

The Airbus 340-500 currently deployed on one of Dar es Salaam’ daily flight, will be replaced with a larger Boeing 777-300ER, giving 40 per cent boost to seat capacity, Emirates said in a statement, adding that the move will also have a positive impact on Tanzania’s import and export industry.
