Emirates will resume passenger flights starting April 6
The United Arab Emirates has approved the resumption of commercial passenger flights, which will be operated by Emirates and Etihad Airways. Thus, from April 6, Emirates will start flying with passengers from Dubai to London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Paris, Zurich and Brussels. There will be 4 weekly flights to London and 3 weekly flights to the other destinations.
But beware because the United Arab Emirates, but also the other countries, have not lifted travel restrictions. Passengers will be informed whether or not they are eligible for the flight.
Emirates will resume passenger flights
To begin with, all of these flights will be operated from Terminal 2 of Dubai Airport (DXB). And there will be passenger flights only to destinations in Europe. Also, Emirates will transport and freight on these flights in both directions.
HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive, Emirates, said that Emirates aircraft will initially only carry passengers who meet the entry protocols in the countries of destination. Many passengers want to leave the United Arab Emirates to return to their families in their home countries.
All scheduled flights will be honored with Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, which will offer seats in Business Class and Economy Class. Tickets can be purchased from the Emirates website, but only if passengers are eligible for the trip.
Because of the pandemic with the new coronavirus, Emirates has changed services on board. Magazines and other printed materials will not be available on these flights. Food and drinks will be served on board, but will be specially packaged. And the service will be made with minimal contact between the passengers and the cabin crew.
Once returned to Dubai, the aircraft will undergo extensive disinfection and cleaning processes after each flight.
