Emirates were originally due to start flying again on May 15, but all commercial flights have been suspended until at least July 1.
Emirates’ schedule will change in line with guidance around Coronavirus. An Emirates statement says:
“COVID-19 flight and travel restrictions remain in place across many countries around the world. We are closely monitoring the situation as it evolves, and we hope to resume services as soon as conditions allow. This includes receiving government approvals, the easing of travel restrictions, and commercial demand. We will announce any service resumption when we are in a position to do so.”
Limited flight schedule
Emirates are still offering flights but with a much reduced schedule until at least July.
Flights into the UAE are restricted to UAE Nationals for the moment.
The airline is operating four weekly services to London Heathrow, and three weekly services to Paris, Frankfurt, Brussels and Zurich. Emirates are also running flights to Manilla on April 24, 26, 28 and 30.
Emirates are also planning a 10-minute Coronavirus test for all future passengers.
If you are flying, Emirates have updated their rules.
Cabin baggage is no longer allowed. Carry-on items are limited to laptop, handbag, briefcase or baby items. All other items have to be checked in, and Emirates will add the cabin baggage allowance to customers’ check-in baggage allowance.
You also need to keep to the social distancing guidelines in the airport and on the plane. And wear your own mask at all times.
