Emirates airline is to launch repatriation passenger services to Jakarta, Manila Taipei, Chicago, Tunis, Algeria, and Kabul.

The flights are in addition to London and Frankfurt, which were previously announced, and will depart from Dubai International Airport’s Terminal 3.

Only citizens of the destination country and those who meet the entry requirements will be allowed to board.

A statement from the Dubai-based carrier said there will be no online check-in or seat selection and services such as chauffeur drive and lounge will not be available in any of the destinations.

Magazines and other print reading material will not be available, and while food and beverages will continue to be offered on board, packaging and presentation will be modified to reduce contact during meal service and the risk of infection.

Cabin baggage will not be accepted on flights and is limited to a laptop, handbag, briefcase or baby items. Passengers, who are advised to arrive three hours before departure, are required to apply social distancing guidelines during their journey and wear their own masks when at the airport and on board the aircraft.   

All Emirates aircraft will go through enhanced cleaning and disinfection processes in Dubai, after each journey.
