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.
