Emirates has said that its A380 aircraft will begin serving travellers on flights to London Heathrow and Paris, starting from July 15.
This follows the announcement earlier in the week that Dubai will re-open to business and leisure visitors from July 7, with new air travel protocols that facilitate travel for UAE citizens, residents and tourists.
Adel Al Redha, Emirates’ chief operating officer, said: ‘The A380 remains a popular aircraft amongst our customers and it offers many unique on-board features. We are delighted to bring it back into the skies to serve our customers on flights to London and Paris from 15 July, and we are looking forward to gradually introduce our A380 into more destinations according to the travel demand on specific destinations. The Emirates A380 experience remains unique in the industry, and even though we’ve modified services onboard for the health and safety of our crew and customers, we are confident that our customers would welcome flying again in this quiet, comfortable aircraft.’
In addition, Emirates has announced that it will commence flights for travellers to Dhaka from June24, and Munich from July 15. Flights to Dhaka and Munich will be operated with an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, and can be booked on emirates.com or via travel agents.
Emirates currently offers flights to over 40 cities, with connections through its Dubai hub for customers travelling between the Asia Pacific, the Gulf, Europe and the Americas.
Emirates has implemented a set of measures to ensure the safety of its customers and employees on the ground and in the air, including the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes to all customers. More information on these measures and the services available on each flight is available at: www.emirates.com/yoursafety.
Customers are further reminded that due to travel restrictions, travellers will only be accepted on flights if they comply with the eligibility and entry criteria requirements of their destination countries. Visitors to Dubai should hold an international health insurance policy covering illness from Covid-19 for the duration of their stay. More information is available at www.emirates.com.
