Emirates to link Conakry to its Dakar service

The linking of Conakry to the four times weekly Dubai to Dakar service will provide new opportunities for business and leisure travelers in Guinea to seamlessly connect to Emirates worldwide network through its Dubai hub, particularly destinations in China, the Middle East, India, Far East and Australia.

DUBAI, U.A.E. – Emirates announced a linked service to Conakry, the capital city of Guinea, from 27 October 2013.

The linking of Conakry to the four times weekly Dubai to Dakar service will provide new opportunities for business and leisure travelers in Guinea to seamlessly connect to Emirates worldwide network through its Dubai hub, particularly destinations in China, the Middle East, India, Far East and Australia.  

Conakry is the largest city of Guinea in West Africa. It’s situated on the Atlantic Ocean and serves as the economic, financial and cultural centre of the country with an estimated population of 1.5 million people.  

“The linking of Conakry takes the number of Emirates destinations in Africa to 24, which is a firm demonstration of our commitment to Africa and helping unlock its enormous potential as one of the fastest growing economic regions of the world,” said Hubert Frach, Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations West.

“Guinea is a developing economy and has a strong mining sector, and by linking Conakry to the Dakar route, it will help to support business, international trade and passenger travel to and from the country” he added.

The Dubai to Dakar route was serviced by an A330-200 aircraft, but since 31 March 2013 a slightly larger A340-300 was introduced onto the route, ahead of the 27 October launch of the Conakry link.  The aircraft has 267 seats in a three–class configuration offering 12 luxurious First Class seats, 42 seats in Business Class and generous space for 213 passengers in Economy Class.  

All classes of the aircraft are equipped with Emirates’ award winning ice entertainment system with hundreds of channels of on-demand entertainment, and gourmet cuisine served by Emirates Cabin Crew from over 120 nationalities.

Emirates flight EK795 leaves Dubai on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. It will depart at 07:20hrs arriving in Conakry at  14:00hrs. The flight will then depart Conakry at 15:25hrs arriving in Dakar at 17:05hrs, and then depart Dakar at 18:35hrs and arrive in Dubai at 07:40 the next day.
