(VEN) - Emirates airline has reintroduced the Boeing 777-300ER on its Ho Chi Minh City route to meet growing demand in Vietnam. Apart from increasing capacity, this upgrade also enhances the onboard experience for passengers.
The new service from Dubai to Ho Chi Minh City, which started on 1 October 2015, is operated with an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER. The new aircraft has 42 seats in Business Class and 304 generously-sized Economy Class seats, increasing capacity by 29 per cent.
“Ho Chi Minh City is a vibrant commercial centre and an attractive tourism destination within Vietnam – one of the fastest growing economies in Asia. Since Emirates started services to Ho Chi Minh City in 2012, we have witnessed significant increase in demand for passenger travel and that is why we decided to upgrade to the Boeing 777-300ER on this route. The up-gauge confirms our strong commitment to bringing high-quality services to our passengers and to effectively connecting Vietnam with our expanding global network,” said Mohammad Sarhan, Emirates’ Country Manager in Vietnam.
On board the Emirates Boeing 777-300ER, passengers can enjoy more than 2,000 channels of the latest movies, TV shows and music from around the world on the award-winning ice inflight entertainment system while enjoying specially created gourmet cuisine served by Emirates’ multi-lingual cabin crew.
