Emirates Resumes Flights to Nine Cities From May 21


Emirates plans to operate scheduled passenger flights to nine cities from May 21, the first such service since it grounded most operations to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

The destinations include London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Paris, Milan, Madrid, Chicago, Toronto, Sydney and Melbourne, the Dubai-based airline said. It will also offer connections in Dubai for those flying between the U.K. and Australia.

“We are working closely with the authorities to plan the resumption of operations to additional destinations,” said Adel Al Redha, Emirates’ chief operating officer.

  • Travellers will only be accepted on these flights if they comply with the eligibility and entry criteria requirements of their destination countries
  • This includes an approval from the Federal Authority for Identify and Citizenship for U.A.E. residents who wish to return to Dubai
