COVID-19: Emirates to Operate Flights to Johannesburg and Lagos


To help travellers reunite with their families during the COVID-19 lockdown, Emirates will operate limited passenger flights to several destinations in Africa, Europe and Asia.

Flights include Johannesburg (25 April), Lagos (26 April), Frankfurt (25, 27, 29 April), Jakarta (26 April), London Heathrow (23, 24, 26, 28, 30 April), Madrid (29 April), Manila (24, 28, 30 April), and Tunis (30 April).

Those wishing to travel to Johannesburg, Lagos, and Tunis must contact the respective embassy or consulate for these countries in the UAE. For all other flights, passengers can book directly on emirates.com (select the “one-way” option when booking), or via their travel agent.

Only citizens of the destination countries and those who meet the entry requirements of the destination will be allowed to board. Customers will be required to follow all health and safety measures required by the UAE authorities and the country of destination.

Similar to other repatriation flights that Emirates has operated thus far, for health and safety reasons, the airline will offer a modified inflight service that reduces contact, and the risk of infection. More information is available on emirates.com.

Passengers are required to apply social distancing guidelines during their journey and wear their own masks when at the airport and on board the aircraft. Travellers should arrive at Dubai

International airport Terminal 3 for check-in, three hours before departure.

Emirates’ check-in counters will only process passengers holding confirmed bookings to the above destinations.

All Emirates aircraft will go through enhanced cleaning and disinfection processes in Dubai, after each journey.
