Emirates will resume its scheduled Heathrow-Melbourne service, via Dubai, later this month, subject to government approval.
The Gulf carrier on Wednesday (13 May) announced plans to operate scheduled flights to nine destinations from its Dubai base, starting 21 May.
These include Heathrow, Frankfurt, Paris, Milan, Madrid, Chicago, Toronto, Sydney and Melbourne.
Travellers will only be accepted on these flights if they comply with the eligibility and entry criteria requirements of their destination country.
Adel Al Redha, Emirates’ chief operating officer, said: “We are working closely with the authorities to plan the resumption of operations to additional destinations.
“We have implemented additional measures at the airport in coordination with the relevant authorities in respect to social distancing and sanitisation. The safety and wellbeing of our employees, customers and communities, remain our top priority.”
