With the UAE no longer ‘red’ Emirates has announced it is restarting services to Glasgow.
From 11 August to 30 October, flights between Dubai and Glasgow will operate four times a week on Emirates’ Boeing 777-200LR, in a two-class configuration, offering premium services in Business Class and Economy Class.
Emirates’ flight EK 27 will depart Dubai on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 07:50, arriving at Glasgow International Airport at 12:45 the same day. The return flight, EK 28, will depart Glasgow at 14:35, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, arriving in Dubai at 01:05 the following day (all times local).
From September, Emirates will increase its flight frequency to a daily service.
Adnan Kazim, Chief Commercial Officer, Emirates, said: “Emirates welcomes the decision to add the UAE to the UK’s ‘amber list’ for international travel, reflecting the extensive steps that have been taken to mitigate the spread of the virus in the UK and UAE.
Since the UK’s announcement, we’ve seen a huge surge in queries from customers desperate to travel to see their families, planning their kids’ return for the new school term, as well as their postponed business or holiday travel. Emirates is reviewing our operations to various points in the UK and any service restart will be announced in the usual fashion.”
