Emirates to resume flights to 29 destinations in total

Dubai-based Emirates Airline is ramping up its return to the skies with the resumption of passenger flights to 29 cities, including the relaunch of its transit operations.

Flights to Bahrain, Manchester, Zurich, Vienna, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Dublin, New York JFK, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Jakarta, Taipei, Hong Kong, Perth and Brisbane, will be available from June 15 on the carrier’s 777-300ER aircraft.

In addition, from June 8 Emirates will offer flights from Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad for travellers from Pakistan who wish to connect onwards to other Emirates destinations.

This is on top of passenger flights already operating to London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Paris, Milan, Madrid, Chicago, Toronto, Sydney, Melbourne and Manila (from June 11).

It comes as the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) announced on Wednesday that UAE airports would reopen for transit flights.

Emirates has implemented a comprehensive set of measures at every step of the customer journey to ensure the safety of its customers and employees on the ground and in the air, including the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes to all customers.

Passengers are reminded that travel restrictions remain in place, and travellers will only be accepted on flights if they comply with the eligibility and entry criteria requirements of their destination countries.
