Emirates Resumes Athens-Dubai Flights



Emirates has announced the resumption of its Athens-Dubai route as of July 15 after months of no flights due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.

The UAE state owned airline will also be offering flights between six other cities in the month of July. Those destinations include Khartoum (from July 3rd), Amman (from July 5th), Osaka (from July 4th), Narita (from July 8th), Larnaca, and Rome (from July 15th).

This takes the total number of destinations that Emirates is offering to 48, facilitating additional travel options through a convenient connection in Dubai for customers across the world, while undertaking extensive measures to ensure the health and safety of customers and employees, a statement by the airline says.

Customers from Emirates’ network will also now be able to travel to Dubai following the announcement earlier this week that the city will be open for business and leisure visitors from 07 July, with new air travel protocols that facilitate travel for UAE citizens, residents and tourists while safeguarding the health and safety of visitors and communities.

Customers can book to fly between destinations in the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and Europe or the Americas, through Dubai, as long as they meet travel and immigration entry requirements of their destination country.

The airline says it has implemented a comprehensive set of measures at every step of the customer journey to ensure the safety of its customers and employees on the ground and in the air, including the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes to all customers.

Emirates reminds that travel restrictions remain in place, and travelers will only be accepted on flights if they comply with the eligibility and entry criteria requirements of their destination countries.
