Emirates plans to restore services to a further six destinations from 15 July to 15 August, bringing the carrier’s network to 58 cities.
The Middle Eastern carrier plans to resume flights to Geneva from 15 July, Los Angeles from 22 July, Dar es Salaam from 1 August, Prague and Sao Paulo from 2 August, and Boston from 15 August.
“We’ve seen an uptick in customer interest and demand since the announcement of Dubai’s re-opening, and also with the increased travel options that we offer as we gradually re-establish our network connectivity,” says chief commercial officer Adnan Kazim. “We continue to work closely with all stakeholders to resume flight operations while ensuring that all necessary measures to safeguard the health and safety of our customers and employees are in place.”
Passengers will be able to connect through the carrier’s Dubai hub or visit the city itself, as it has re-opened for visitors.
The airline has amended its booking policies to offer customers flexibility with their travel plans. “Customers who purchase an Emirates ticket by 31 July 2020 for travel on or before 30 November 2020, can enjoy generous rebooking terms and options, if they have to change their travel plans due to unexpected flight or travel restrictions relating to Covid-19,” it says.
