Emirates has engaged local travel agency Rennies Travel to facilitate air travel from Namibia to Dubai and the Far East, and announced plans to use A380 equipment on a new route to Johannesburg (All Africa, 06-Jun-2011). The carrier plans to launch daily Dubai-Oliver R Tambo International Airport service using the equipment on 01-Oct-2011.
Emirates: “Africa continues to grow its profile as one of the biggest contributors to Emirates' global business, with southern Africa playing a major part in this.
