Emirates Airline is set to resume services to five more destinations in Africa.

The routes include Johannesburg (October 1), Cape Town (October 1) and Durban (October 4) in South Africa, as well as Harare in Zimbabwe (October 1) and Mauritius (October 3).

The addition of these five points brings the total number of African cities served by Emirates to 19 and its global network to 92 destinations.

Flight schedules for the South African destinations will be released later this week, while the airline will operate to Harare with two weekly flights linked to its Lusaka service.

Meanwhile, flights from Dubai to Mauritius will initially operate once a week on Saturdays, supporting the Mauritian government's repatriation efforts to bring its citizens home, and enabling the recovery of the country's tourism industry.
