Emirates resumed flights from Manchester airport today (17 June), offering an initial twice-weekly service to Dubai.
Flights from Manchester depart Wednesday and Sunday at 14.05, arriving at 00.20 the following day. The resumption of services at Manchester follows the relaunch of a limited Emirates service to Heathrow.
The carrier is deploying a Boeing 777 on the Manchester route, replacing the larger Airbus A380.
Emirates said it had implemented a set of measures to ensure safety, including complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes.
Jason McVeigh, Emirates’ deputy airport services manager at Manchester said: “Our teams in Manchester and Dubai are delighted to be resuming flights for passengers, reconnecting the North with Emirates’ global network after a pause.
“We look forward to welcoming passengers on board and have taken comprehensive steps to keep passengers, colleagues and communities safe.”
