Emirates to resume passenger flights to nine destinations


Emirates has announced plans to resume passenger flights to nine destinations from May 21.

These include London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Paris, Milan, Madrid, Chicago, Toronto, Sydney and Melbourne.

The airline also offers connections in Dubai for customers flying between the UK and Australia. 

Travellers will only be permitted to fly if they meet the requirements of their destination countries. This includes an approval from the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) for UAE residents who wish to return to Dubai.

"We are pleased to resume scheduled passenger services to these destinations, providing more options for customers to travel from the UAE to these cities, and also between the UK and Australia," said Adel Al Redha, Emirates' Chief Operating Officer.

"We are working closely with the authorities to plan the resumption of operations to additional destinations. We have implemented additional measures at the airport in coordination with the relevant authorities in respect to social distancing and sanitization. The safety and wellbeing of our employees, customers and communities, remain our top priority." 

The airline said it will continue to work with embassies and consulates to facilitate repatriation flights for visitors and residents wishing to return home.

This week, the airline will fly to Tokyo Narita (May 15), Conakry (May 16) and Dakar (May 16).
