Emirates to reinstate flights to Stockholm in August
The return of the service is part of the airline's plans to resume all routes to Scandinavia
Emirates will resume weekly passenger flights to Stockholm from August 1, expanding its European network to 22 cities.
The reinstatement of the Stockholm service means all routes to Scandinavia will have resumed services by August, with flights to Oslo restarting on August 4. Flights to Copenhagen have been in operation since June.
Flights between Stockholm and Dubai will run on Saturdays, departing Dubai International Airport at 8.40am and arriving in Stockholm at 1.10pm local time. The return flight will leave Stockholm Arlanda Airport at 3.05pm, touching back down in Dubai at 11.20pm.
All flights will operate on an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER, with extra Covid-19 safety procedures in place. These include the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits to passengers that contain masks, gloves, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes.
The news takes the Duba airline’s network to 63 destinations to and via Dubai, connecting Europe to the Middle East, South and North America, Asia Pacific and Africa.
Passengers are urged, however, to check entry requirements for destinations because these are constantly updated.
The status of many passports has changed recently, so it is important to check in advance. A passport that has historically allowed visa-free travel to a destination may no longer do so.
Some travellers will need to prove they are not infected with Covid-19 before being allowed on flights. For those on Emirates, this applies to people coming from 12 countries listed by the airline. You can see that list here.
Last week, Emirates resumed passenger flights to Athens, Barcelona, Geneva, Glasgow, Larnaca, the Maldives, Munich, Rome and Brussels.
