Back in November 2017, Emirates Airline revealed their game-changing new Boeing 777-300ER cabins that took luxury to new heights (pun always intended). Fast forward 18 months and these aircrafts are now being deployed to Riyadh starting from 16 April and Kuwait later this year from 1 June.
The multi-million Dirham renovations, inspired by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, boast first-class cabins with 40 square feet of space, floor to ceiling sliding doors and uber-lux décor, including supple leather seating, high-tech control panels and mood lighting.
“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait will be the first countries in the Middle East and GCC to be served by the latest Emirates Boeing 777 aircraft featuring fully-enclosed private suites inspired by luxury automaker Mercedes-Benz,” says Adil Al Ghaith, Senior Vice President Commercial Operations Gulf, Middle East & Iran.
“Deploying the newest Boeing 777 to both Riyadh and Kuwait will cater to the significant premium demand we see on these routes, and is in line with our commitment to provide our customers across all classes with outstanding service and industry-leading on-board products for a better flying experience. The unique First Class suites on-board the Boeing 777 will offer our premium passengers unparalleled privacy, comfort and luxury, with experiences tailored to their individual needs.”
Emirates Boeing 777-300ER currently only flies to Brussels, Geneva, Vienna and London Stansted. The new aircraft will begin operating the route from Dubai five times a week to Riyadh and daily to Kuwait.
