Adnan Kazim, Emirates' Chief Commercial Officer said: "Thanks to the UAE authorities' support and partnership, Emirates has been able to provide smooth and safe journeys for those who need to travel, and we look forward to adding flights to more destinations in the coming weeks.

“The UAE government's recent announcement to ease travel restrictions for UAE citizens and residents shows the thorough approach that our country is taking with regards to resuming economic activities, and as we gradually return to regular services, Emirates' number one priority will always be the health and safety of our customers, our crew and our communities."

 

Health and safety

Emirates says that it has implemented a comprehensive set of measures to ensure the safety of its customers and employees on the ground and in the air.

Measures taken by the airline include the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes to all customers.
