Emirates has announced that from June 15 it will offer passenger services to 16 more cities on its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
This follows the UAE Federal Government’s decision to lift restrictions on transit passengers’ services.
With travel restrictions remaining in place in most countries, customers are reminded to check entry and exit requirements before their journeys.
The airline said flights to the following cities would be available for booking: Bahrain, Manchester, Zurich, Vienna, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Dublin, New York JFK, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Jakarta, Taipei, Hong Kong, Perth and Brisbane.
In addition, from June 8, Emirates said it would offer flights from Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad for travellers from Pakistan who wish to connect onwards to other Emirates destinations.
With this latest announcement, Emirates will be offering flights for passengers on the back of its scheduled cargo operations from Dubai to 29 cities, including existing flights to London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Paris, Milan, Madrid, Chicago, Toronto, Sydney, Melbourne and Manila (from June 11).
“Customers can book to fly between destinations in the Asia Pacific and Europe or the Americas, with a convenient connection in Dubai, as long as they meet travel and immigration entry requirements of their destination country.
“Working closely with the UAE authorities, Emirates continues to take a measured and phased approach to flight resumption and rebuilding connections between Dubai and the world,” the airline said in a release on Monday.
It also said it had included the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing face masks, gloves, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes to all customers to ensure safety on the ground and in the air.
“Customers are reminded that travel restrictions remain in place, and travellers will only be accepted on flights if they comply with the eligibility and entry criteria requirements of their destination countries.
