Emirates will add a second daily service to Prague in July, adding 2,520 seats weekly, to meet growing demand eight years after it opened the route.

The airline's codeshare agreement with sister low-cost carrier flydubai, announced last summer, will allow passengers to connect in Dubai to African and Asian destinations on flydubai's network, Emirates said in an emailed statement on Tuesday.

Routes including Zanzibar, Kathmandu, Salalah and Kilimanjaro are currently popular with Czech travellers, it said.

Emirates will operate the second flight with a Boeing 777-ER aircraft, adding capacity to the route currently served by the Airbus A380 double-decker. Both flydubai and Emirates serve Prague.

The additional belly-cargo on the second Emirates flight is expected to boost trade ties, offering Czech companies the opportunity to export machinery, pharmaceuticals, perishables, glass and automotive parts to markets in the Middle East, South-East Asia and Australia.
