Saudi Arabia and Kuwait will be the first countries in the Middle East to be served by the latest Emirates Boeing 777-300ER aircraft featuring private suites inspired by automaker Mercedes-Benz.

The move was prompted by the airline to offer “a range of experiences and greater choice” for customers travelling for business and leisure.

Emirates will begin operating first class suites from Dubai to Riyadh from 16 April 2019 and to Kuwait from 1 June 2019.

The new Boeing 777 aircraft will begin operating the route to Riyadh five times a week, and from 1 June 2019 will begin flying on a daily basis, while the flight to Kuwait will begin operating every day from June.

Adil Al Ghaith, senior vice president for Emirates’ commercial operations for the Gulf, Middle East & Iran said deploying the Boeing 777 to both Riyadh and Kuwait will cater to the “significant premium demand”.

“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,” said Al Ghaith.

“Deploying the newest Boeing 777 to both Riyadh and Kuwait is in line with our commitment to providing our customers across all classes with outstanding service and industry-leading on board products for a better flying experience.”
