Emirates has announced it will add a fourth daily flight to Riyadh from Dubai from 1 September.

The additional daily service will bring the airline’s total weekly flights to the Saudi capital to 28.

The fourth daily service will be operated on board the B777-300ER in a three-class configuration, with all seats equipped with Emirates’ ice entertainment system with more than 3,500 channels to choose from.

First class passengers are allowed up to 50kg of baggage, while Business customers are allowed 40kg and Economy is allowed 35kg.

Flight EK813 will depart Dubai at 1500, arriving in Riyadh at 1550 local time. The return flight, EK814 will leave at 1750 and land at 2040. The new afternoon flight adds to the existing selection of morning and evening services.

Adil Al Ghaith, senior vice president of commercial operations in the Gulf, Middle East and Iran at Emirates, said: “Emirates’ expanded schedule to Riyadh will offer more travel options and choice for business travellers and families alike who are looking to visit Dubai. There are strong passenger flows between Riyadh and Dubai so enhancing our services makes business sense, and further underscores Riyadh’s importance within our global network.”
