Emirates Boeing 777 300 ER

Emirates first launched its Dubai-Conakry-Dakar-Dubai route in October 2013. The airline made the decision to suspend services in August 2014 after a review of its operations. Emirates has announced that it will resume flights to Conakry, the capital of Guinea, from 30th October 2016.

The flight to Conakry will be linked to Emirates’ four times weekly service between Dubai and Dakar. A Boeing 777-300ER aircraft was introduced on the route between Dubai and Dakar today (2 August 2016) ahead of the relinking of Conakry, which will provide additional capacity and an enhanced on board customer experience. The aircraft will be in a three class cabin configuration, with eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class and 310 spacious seats in Economy Class.

Once Conakry re-joins Emirates’ global network of more than 150 destinations, the airline will serve 28 destinations in Africa, providing expansive connectivity to and from the continent.

In addition to passenger operations, Emirates SkyCargo will also reintroduce its services and offer about 20 tonnes of cargo capacity per flight for key exports such as seafood, fruit, vegetables and textiles, and imports of mobile phones, pharmaceuticals and mining equipment.

Emirates flight EK797 will depart Dubai every Tuesday, and EK795 will depart Dubai every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 07h25 and arrive in Conakry at 13h40. The flight will then depart Conakry at 15h10 and arrive in Dakar 16h35. The return flight will depart Dakar at 18h05 and arrive in Dubai at 07h35 the next morning.
