According to POPSUGAR, they’ve just announced that they’re adding 45 extra flights to Jeddah and Medina, on their popular A380 aircrafts, between August 17 and September 11.


This year, 12 million people are expected to travel to Mecca so Emirates offering a helping hand is definitely something we cannot thank them enough for.

“On planes, staff will be advising passengers about Al Miqat and Ihram (when pilgrims enter a state of sanctity) and their entertainment system will show the Holy Quran channel, as well as a video about safety, and other formalities during Hajj,” POPSUGAR reported.



WE SAID THIS: It gets better! On the way back, passengers can carry up to 5 liter of Zamzam water.
