Emirates reinstates flights to China, Ethiopia, Iran and Norway

The airline will resume these flights in July and August, meaning it will then be flying to 62 destinations in total

Emirates has added four more destinations to its network of flights.

The Dubai airline announced it will resume services to Addis Ababa, Guangzhou, Oslo and Tehran.

This will mean travellers have a choice of 62 destinations to fly to and from Dubai with Emirates by August. The airline acts as a major connector across the globe, with many transiting via Dubai to hop across continents.

Daily flights to Tehran will resume on July 17. A weekly service to Guangzhou will start from July 25. On August 1, the airline will commence three flights a week to Addis Abada and on August 4 it will begin flying to Oslo once again, with two flights per week.

All of the flights will be operated with a Boeing 777-300ER, with enhanced safety procedures in place to protect passengers against Covid-19. This includes the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits to passengers containing masks, gloves, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes.

Travellers can now travel to and from Dubai, but Emirates reminds passengers to check entry requirements for destinations as these are constantly being updated. The status of many passports has changed recently, so it is important to check in advance.

Some travellers will need to prove they are Covid-19 free before being allowed on flights. This only applies to people coming from 12 countries listed by Emirates.

Emirates is now flying to six continents around the world.

It has been a busy week for the Dubai airline. On Wednesday, the Emirates A380 superjumbo took to the sky for the first time in nearly four months.

It is now operating between London and Paris, and will begin flying to Amsterdam on August 1.

This week Emirates also resumed passenger flights to eight other cities – Athens, Barcelona, Geneva, Glasgow, Larnaca, the Maldives, Munich, and Rome. On Friday, it will resume flights to Brussels.
