Emirates resumes first passenger flights following temporary suspension

Emirates has received approvals to carry passengers on certain flights.

Effective from Monday, initial 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.

Operating from Dubai International airport Terminal 2 until further notice, these flights will only carry outbound passengers from the UAE, according to a media release.

The initial passenger services will be limited to travellers who meet the entry requirements set by the destination country.

Emirates will also carry belly-hold cargo in directions, supporting trade and communities with the transport of essential goods.

Emirates will operate its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on these routes, offering seats in Business and Economy class.

Travel restrictions are in place at these destinations, and travellers are urged to check entry criteria before they fly.

For health and safety reasons, Emirates will operate a modified inflight service programme on these flights, the release added.

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