One of the leading airlines in the world, Emirates, has increased its flights by 31% and plans to add more after 26 March. The move is part of the airline’s goal to expand its operations worldwide.
Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) of Emirates, Adnan Kazim, stated that the airline is growing its network and offering more flights to meet the increasing travel demand.
At the beginning of the year, the airline did not introduce more flights because of Dubai International Airport’s (DXB) renovation that was due to be completed in June.
