Johannesburg - Emirates airline has announced that it will introduce a fourth daily flight between Dubai and Johannesburg. 

The airline announced in a press release that it was lifting its number of daily flights to South Africa to seven - effective from October 26, 2014.

The addition boosts Emirates’ total number of scheduled flights between the two countries to 49 a week, re-affirming its position as one of the largest flight operators into South Africa.

In addition to Johannesburg, Emirates also services the popular cities of Cape Town and Durban.

Linking South Africa with Emirates’ global network, the seven daily flights demonstrate the importance of the South African market for Emirates.

“We are introducing our fourth daily service between Dubai and Johannesburg to meet the growing passenger demand for flights between these two important business and tourism hubs. The increased frequency gives our customers greater flexibility in their travel plans and enhances connectivity to other flights on the Emirates network through our Dubai hub," said Orhan Abbas, Emirates Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Latin America, Central and Southern Africa.
