Dubai-based carrier Emirates will reach 15 destinations in Africa by next month, the airline said Thursday, as it gradually rebuilds a flight network crippled by the coronavirus pandemic.

Flights to Luanda, Angola, will operate once a week on Thursdays beginning Oct. 1, a statement from Emirates said. Last week, the air carrier restarted passenger services to Moscow and announced it would be resuming flights to Casablanca on Sept. 18.
