DUBAI, UAE, 23 November 2020: Emirates will redeploy A380 aircraft to serve the Doha – London Heathrow route four times daily effective 27 November and six times weekly to Manchester from 2 December.
A380 services to Moscow increase from the current two weekly
flights to daily effective 25 November.
Emirates will also increase flights to Birmingham and
Glasgow from the current four weekly to daily services from 27 November and 1
Emirates’ services to Manchester will increase from the current
eight to 10 flights weekly from 1 December. Six will be served by an Emirates
A380 and four with a Boeing 777-300ER.
At London Heathrow, Emirates’ current twice-daily A380 and
daily Boeing 777 flights will become four daily A380 services from 27 November.
These represent a significant expansion of Emirates services
to the UK, following the recent establishment of the UK-UAE air travel corridor
which has led to increased demand.
Under the air travel corridor, travellers entering the UK from the UAE will no longer be required to quarantine, which is a boon for travellers, and speaks to the UAE’s rigorous and effective pandemic response. In the other direction, UK travellers heading to Dubai can opt to do their COVID-19 PCR tests 96 hours in advance of their flight, or to do the test on arrival in Dubai, adding to the ease of travel.
Emirates’ enhanced services to Moscow will also meet
increased demand from travellers seeking to holiday in Dubai, or at popular
island destinations within easy reach through Dubai, such as the Maldives.
Dubai is open for international business and leisure visitors and was one of the world’s first cities to obtain Safe Travels stamp from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) – which endorses Dubai’s comprehensive and effective measures to ensure guest health and safety.
