Dubai airline Emirates will operate an additional 46 flights to Jeddah and Madinah during the Hajj season.
The flights will be operated between July 27 and August 22, the airline announced.
The services will run in parallel with Emirates’ regularly scheduled services to Jeddah and Madinah, and will be available to travelers holding a valid visa. This year, Emirates expects thousands of pilgrims to travel on its services for Hajj, coming from top inbound destinations such as Pakistan, the US, Senegal, the UK, Nigeria, Indonesia, South Africa and Ivory Coast.
On the ground in Dubai, Emirates has commissioned a dedicated team to manage check-in and transfers for the seamless movement of Hajj passengers leaving from and transiting in Dubai.
