Coronavirus: Emirates to Resume Scheduled Passenger Flights
Following approval from the UAE government, Emirates will resume carrying passengers on certain flights after almost a two-week suspension due to COVID-19 pandemic.
Effective Monday 6 April, flights will commence from Dubai to London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Paris, Brussels and Zurich, with 4 flights a week to London Heathrow, and 3 flights a week to the other cities.
These flights will only carry outbound passengers from the UAE. Emirates will also carry belly-hold cargo in both directions, supporting trade and communities with the transport of essential goods.
Emirates will operate Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on these routes, offering seats in Business and Economy class. Flights can be booked by eligible passengers on www.emirates.com.
Travel restrictions are in place at these destinations, and travellers are urged to check entry criteria before they fly.
