Dubai’s Emirates to serve 100% of network destinations by summer 2021 – COO

The airline has been gradually restoring its network connectivity, which will broaden to 75 cities in September

Dubai carrier Emirates aims to serve 100 per cent of its network destinations, tantamount to 143 cities, by summer 2021, its chief operating officer Adel al Redha has said.

“I wouldn’t say the worse is behind us, but definitely it is a positive trend. If I compare our performance now with a month ago, we have almost doubled the number of passengers we have been carrying onboard our aircraft, as transit or terminating in Dubai,” the COO told CNBC.

“I think we can easily say by summer 2021, we will be serving 100 per cent of our network destinations, that means 143 destinations will be served by summer 2021. Obviously, the frequency of flights per day will depend on the demand and some of the restrictions,” Al Redha added.

The airline has been gradually restoring its network connectivity, working closely with international and local authorities to meet travel demand.

Earlier this week, Emirates announced the resumption of passenger services to the Polish capital, which would stretch its passenger network to 75 cities in September.
