UAE welcomes Denmark's lifting of flight suspension

The UAE has welcomed Denmark's decision to lift the temporary suspension on flights originating in the UAE.

The move by Danish authorities to require travellers from all countries to receive a negative PCR test result 24 hours prior to travel, and quarantine for a period of 10 days upon arrival, is in line with measures the UAE has successfully implemented since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Commenting on the announcement, Ambassador Fatima Khamis Salem Khalfan Almazrouei, UAE Ambassador to Denmark, said the UAE appreciated the step taken by the Danish authorities.

 "UAE authorities have worked closely with their Danish counterparts in this regard and remain committed to exchanging information and best practices in the shared global fight against the virus."

For his part, Franz-Michael Skjold Mellbin, Denmark's Ambassador to the UAE, stated: "I am happy that we again have direct flights going from the UAE to Denmark. Following positive contacts at the ministerial level, the UAE swiftly responded to Danish concerns while providing an excellent solution for the resumption of flights. These are challenging times for international transportation, and this is one of many examples of how governments can find pragmatic answers to difficult questions by working together."
