DUBAI-based Emirates has added a 24th destination to its Africa route network, after commencing services to Conakry in the Republic of Guinea, which marks the sixth new destination launched this year.
Emirates SkyCargo will also offer 13 tonnes of cargo capacity per flight. Guinea's main exports are perishables such as fresh fish, fruits, vegetables, rock and oil samples, and imports of general cargo, pharmaceuticals, textiles, mobile phones and electronics, mining equipment and machinery.
The service that operates four times a week is linked to the airline's existing Dakar,Senegal operation. It departs from Dubai and arrives at Conakry International Airport the same day.
The flight then departs Conakry arriving in Dakar later that same day. From Dakar it returns to Dubai the following day.
