Last week, the world’s busiest air route was shutdown indefinitely. Today, Emirates have announced plans to resume one-way flights from the UK to Dubai which will commence on 2nd February 2021. The current ban imposed by the UK government prohibits direct flights from operating to the UK from any country that has been added to the red list of countries from which there is a risk of the South African on Brazilian Covid 19 variant from entering the country. There is no ban however on flights operating from the UK to a red list country.
Emirates will operate a single daily flight from London Heathrow to Dubai in addition to 4 weekly flights from Manchester to Dubai. The airline will also operate flights from Birmingham and Glasgow to Dubai however these will be cargo only flights.
In a statement, the airline said: “Emirates will re-instate outbound passenger operations from the UK, from February 2, 2021. Emirates is reinstating outbound flights from the UK to Dubai primarily to help return passengers, particularly UAE residents, to get home. Passenger services inbound to the UK remain suspended as per government directives.”
“Passengers traveling from the UK should ensure they are permitted to travel as per latest the UK government advisory, and check the local entry requirements of their destination. Emirates remains committed to serving our customers in the UK, and continues to work closely with all relevant authorities in this regard. The health and safety of our customers, colleagues and the communities we serve, will always be our top priority.”
