“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."
