Emirates airline passenger flights set to remain grounded until July

Emirates airline passenger flights set to remain grounded until July

Emirates is continuing to closely monitor the pandemic, with an eye to resuming services as soon as conditions allow.

Emirates airline looks to set to keep its passenger flights grounded until July at the earliest, according to the latest routes data. 

While the Dubai carrier is currently operating repatriation flights to select destinations, the latest update on its planned routes show that regular passenger flights have been delayed until at least the start of Q3 this year. 

According to its website, some Emirates flights from July onwards are open for booking, although the airline says that they are subject to change depending on developments of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

However, a website which tracks airline routes – Routes Online – has posted a list of Emirates’ revised flight schedule from July 1 onwards.

The list of flights includes destinations across the Emirates network, including locations in Europe, the United States and Asia.

When contacted by Arabian Business, an Emirates spokesperson confirmed that “some of our flights are available for booking”.

“However, the situation remains dynamic and these flight services could be subject to change,” the spokesperson added. “We aim to provide our customers with as much notice as possible should there be any changes.”

The spokesperson added that Emirates is continuing to closely monitor the pandemic, with an eye to resuming services as soon as conditions allow.

“This includes receiving government approvals, the easing of travel restrictions, and commercial demand,” the spokesperson said. “We will announce any service resumption when we are in a position to do so.”

Previously, a number of reduced flight options were available for reservation between May 15 and July 15, although those flights appear to now be suspending in the Emirates booking system.
