Coronavirus: Passengers head home as Dubai airport puts on limited flights - in pictures

Emirates opened bookings for special repatriation services to select destinations

Tens of thousands of travellers usually pass through the terminals of Dubai International Airport each day.

Some are weary as they make a connection from one end of the world to the other, while others bound through the lengthy hallways with excitement as they prepare to jet off to an exotic new destination, or visit family after a long time apart.

The runways are typically packed with Emirates' flagship A380 and Boeing 777s as passengers take a quick snap of their flying chariot for Instagram before take off.

Now, however, it's a more serene experience amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The cacophony of trolleys and baggage, taxis and children is gone. The snaking queues for busy routes are a memory as passengers adhere to instructions to remain at a safe space from one another as they check in.

Emirates received approval to fly passengers outbound from the UAE to select destinations across Europe.

The outgoing flights were heading to London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Paris, Brussels and Zurich.

Passengers could also expect a modified in-flight service with no magazines or newspapers, and food and beverages presented in a way that reduces contact between crew members and passengers.

Emirates had instructed travellers to wear face masks and gloves when flying, and it advised travellers to be ready for enhanced security checks at Dubai Airport Terminal 2, where all flights will temporarily depart from. This includes thermal scanning for every passenger.

Etihad also started a limited schedule of flights to several destinations as a special service to repatriate citizens of foreign countries.

Hydrogen: Market potential

Hydrogen has an estimated $11 trillion market potential, according to Bank of America Securities and is expected to generate $2.5tn in direct revenues and $11tn of indirect infrastructure by 2050 as its production increases six-fold.

"We believe we are reaching the point of harnessing the element that comprises 90 per cent of the universe, effectively and economically,” the bank said in a recent report.

Falling costs of renewable energy and electrolysers used in green hydrogen production is one of the main catalysts for the increasingly bullish sentiment over the element.

The cost of electrolysers used in green hydrogen production has halved over the last five years and will fall to 60 to 90 per cent by the end of the decade, acceding to Haim Israel, equity strategist at Merrill Lynch. A global focus on decarbonisation and sustainability is also a big driver in its development.
