Dubai’s Emirates resumes flights to 6 more cities; network to grow to 58 destinations

Emirates has revised its booking policies to offer customers added flexibility

Dubai’s Emirates will resume flights to six additional destinations, offering customers increased travel options, it announced on July 9.

The destinations include: Geneva (from July 15), Los Angeles (from July 22), Dar es Salaam (from August 1), Prague and São Paulo (from August 2), and Boston (from August 15).

The additions will scale the airline’s network to 58 cities by mid-August, including 20 points in Europe and 24 points in the Asia Pacific.

Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ chief commercial officer said: “We’ve seen an uptick in customer interest and demand since the announcement of Dubai’s re-opening, and also with the increased travel options that we offer as we gradually re-establish our network connectivity. We continue to work closely with all stakeholders to resume flight operations while ensuring that all necessary measures to safeguard the health and safety of our customers and employees are in place.”

Those looking to travel via the airline will have to meet travel and immigration entry requirements of their destination country. Visitors to Dubai must have an international health insurance policy covering illness from Covid-19 for the duration of their stay.

As the borders gradually reopen, Emirates has revised its booking policies to offer customers added flexibility.

Customers who purchase an Emirates ticket by July 31, 2020, for travel on or before November 30, 2020, can enjoy flexible terms when they either book a Flex or Flex plus fare, or have to alter their travel plans due to Covid-19 related flight or travel restrictions.
