Emirates, the world’s largest long-haul airline before the pandemic, will restore capacity on 29 routes as the easing of travel restrictions boosts demand.
The airline will increase its UK services to 73 a week, the Dubai-based carrier said in a statement Wednesday. Emirates will serve London Heathrow with three daily flights operated by Airbus SE A380 planes with immediate effect, before increasing the frequency to six over time.
The airline will also boost capacity to the US, South Africa and other countries on the African continent.
The UK last week downgraded the UAE to medium-risk status from high, meaning travelers can isolate at a home rather than face pricey hotel quarantine. The UAE has also started to allow transit passengers from some countries in the Indian subcontinent, opening key destinations for Emirates. — Bloomberg.
