Emirates expands its network to 70 destinations

Emirates has announced to resume passenger services to Kuwait City (August 5) and Lisbon (August 16). 

This will take Emirates' passenger network to 70 destinations in August, more than 50% of its pre-pandemic destination network, as the airline gradually resumes operations with the safety of its customers, crew and communities as its top priority.

Emirates has also introduced a second daily A380 service to London Heathrow in addition to its B777 services currently operating to London Heathrow, Manchester and Glasgow.

Flights from Dubai to Kuwait City will operate as a daily service and flights from Dubai to Lisbon will operate three times a week. The flights will be operated with the Emirates Boeing 777-300ER and can be booked on emirates.com or via travel agents.

Passengers travelling between the Americas, Europe, Africa, Middle East, and Asia Pacific can get safe and convenient connections via Dubai. COVID-19 PCR tests are mandatory for all inbound and transit passengers arriving to Dubai (and the UAE), including UAE citizens, residents and tourists, irrespective of the country they are coming from. 

Destination Dubai: In 2019, the city welcomed 16.7 million visitors and hosted over hundreds of global meetings and exhibitions, as well as sports and entertainment events. 

Since Dubai re-opened to tourists on July 7, so far the number of new COVID-19 cases across the UAE has remained steady and is on a downward trend. Dubai was one of the world's first cities to obtain Safe Travels stamp from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC).

Free, global cover for COVID-19 related costs: Customers can travel with confidence as Emirates will cover COVID-19 related medical expenses, free of cost, should they be diagnosed with COVID-19 during their travel while they are away from home. This cover is immediately effective for customers flying on Emirates until October 31 2020 (first flight to be completed on or before October 31 2020), and is valid for 31 days from the moment they fly the first sector of their journey. 

Health and safety: Emirates has implemented a comprehensive set of measures at every step of the customer journey, including the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes for all.
