Air France-KLM VA presents Destination Saturdays Vol. 13: Dubai | @ HECA - 171700ZMAR18
The largest and most populous city in the United Arab Emirates is on our horizon as we head East, away from Cairo, for the 13th installment of Destination Saturdays. Following a brief stint in Africa, we will depart from Cairo International Airport and make our way towards the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf to the iconic city of Dubai.
Air France – KLM Virtual cordially invites you to experience Destination Saturdays, our signature event series dedicated to traversing the most iconic destinations, beautiful airports, and challenging approaches across the globe. Some describe it as career mode for the world traveler at heart, while others say we’ve set out to finish what Amelia Earhart started. However you look at it, Destination Saturdays is sure to deliver fun times flying with friends (old and new). Be part of the journey every other week as we pick up where we last left off!
