A sign that things are getting a little better is the news that Emirates is now flying twice daily between Heathrow and Dubai.
Using a 489-seat three-class (14, 76, 399) Airbus A380 the carrier is for the time being operating out of Heathrow Terminal 2. There are at present no lounge facility arrangements.
The airline also reintroduced A380 flights last week to Amsterdam, Cairo and Guangzhou, and says it has now resumed passenger network operations to 50% of pre-pandemic destinations.
Customers from Emirates’ network can stop over in Dubai as the city has re-opened for international business and leisure visitors. However Covid-19 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.
As previously noted (See BTN 25 July) the airline continues to offer free travel insurance.
