Emirates airline adds more repatriation flights for UAE-based Filipinos

Dubai carrier Emirates airline has added three flights to Manila

Emirates airline adds more repatriation flights for UAE-based Filipinos

Emirates has said the flights are only open to citizens of the Philippines and those who meet the entry requirements at Manila.


Emirates airline will continue to repatriate 100s of Filipinos in the UAE next week, with three flights announced from Dubai to Manila.

The Dubai carrier will operate the three flights on April 20, 22 and 24, which can be booked on the airline’s website or via travel agents.

The additional services follow two flights to Manila this week.

Emirates has said the flights are only open to citizens of the Philippines and those who meet the entry requirements at Manila.

Similar to other repatriation flights that Emirates has operated thus far, for health and safety reasons, the airline will offer a modified inflight service that reduces contact, and the risk of infection. More information is available on emirates.com.

Passengers will be required to apply social distancing guidelines during their journey and wear their own masks when at the airport and on board the aircraft.  Travellers should arrive at Dubai International airport Terminal 3 for check-in, three hours before departure. Emirates' check-in counters will only process passengers holding confirmed bookings.
