Whilst Emirates is hunkering down by reducing frequency on a lot of its network, it is also trying to grow its destinations, with the airline planning to bring back more destinations.
Let’s look at where the airline is planning to resume operations.
Emirates will add back in Amman, Jordan from the 8th September. The move will mark a return to the Jordanian capital. It will bring Emirates up to eight destinations across the Gulf and the Middle East.
Planned operation is as follows:
EK903 DEPART DXB 15:00 ARRIVE AMM 16:55 EK904 DEPART AMM 19:00 ARRIVE DXB 23:00
Commences 8th September Operates Daily Booked Equipment: Boeing 777-300ER
Lagos and Abuja, Nigeria
Emirates is expanding its operation to Nigeria, with passenger services resuming to Lagos and Abuja, boosting the African network to 13 destinations in the region.
Lagos will operate four times a week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Meanwhile, flights to Abuja will operate on a daily basis.
Whilst Emirates say these flights are available for booking through their portals, it’s best to check – I had more than a little fun attempting to price these itineraries…
In case you needed a reminder
Emirates reminds you that COVID-19 PCR tests are mandatory for all inbound and transit passengers arriving at Dubai (and the UAE), including UAE citizens, residents and tourists, irrespective of the country they are coming from.
As such, you will need to ensure you can get a PCR Test shortly before you travel both on your outbound and inbound journeys.
And as we continue onwards, that could be the part of the solution to unblocking the travel plug – offering testing before flight and mandatory testing on landing, rather than the blunt instrument of travel corridors.
