Flights from Dubai to France resume


Flights from Dubai to two popular destinations in France will be resuming in July.

According to Emirates Airline, this comes after the French government announced quarantine-free entry for vaccinated visitors starting today - provided they've completed a two-week period after taking both doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech or AstraZeneca vaccine. 

The Dubai-based carrier said it will be offering four flights a week to each city with operations resuming to Nice from July 2 and to Lyon from July 9. 

Fully vaccinated passengers will still be required to present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result with a validity of no more than 72 hours prior to departure. 

A rapid antigen test result taken within 48 hours will also be accepted.
