The flights will begin from April 6.

Dubai-based carrier Emirates has received approval from UAE authorities to start flying a limited number of passenger flights.

“From 6 April, these flights will initially carry travelers outbound from the UAE. Air cargo will also be carried on these flights to support trade and communities. Details will be announced soon,” Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and CEO of Emirates Group, Chairman of Dubai Airports, and President of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, said.

“Over time, Emirates looks forward to the gradual resumption of passenger services in line with the lifting of travel and operational restrictions, including the assurance of health measures to safeguard our people and customers. Their safety and well-being will always be our top priority,” he added.
