Emirates to Resume Flights to Addis Abeba

Jul 18 , 2020

Emirates, a state-owned airline and flag carrier of the United Arab Emirates, is set to resume flying to Addis Abeba starting on August 1, 2020. The airline has announced its decision to resume flights after it stopped on March 31, 2020, due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The airline is also resuming flights to Tehran, Iran and Oslo, Norway, starting on July 17 and August 4, 2020, respectively. Operating with its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, Emirates will fly to a total of 62 destinations by the coming month. It has introduced air travel protocols to restrict the transmission of the pandemic during flights. Travelers from and to Dubai are required to have travel insurance covering COVID-19 along with a negative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test certificate. Customers whose travel plans were disrupted due to COVID-19 restrictions are able to rebook to fly at a later time or to request refunds since their tickets will be valid for 24 months. The airline demands travelers follow COVID-19 safety measures such as wearing face masks and gloves and bringing hand sanitiser kits with them.
