Emirates to raise capacity on Dubai-Budapest flight
Dubai-based Emirates airline is increasing capacity on its Dubai-Budapest flight as of December, the airlineʼs country director Gábor Horváth said today.
Emirates expects to fly a Boeing 777, with a capacity for 364 passengers, on the route, Horváth said. Currently, Emirates flies an Airbus A330 that can carry 276 passengers on the route.
The load factor on the flight, launched last October, is 80%. The mix of tourists and business travellers is "healthy", Horváth added.
