Emirates is ramping up its network after the UAE lifted limits on transit passengers via Dubai.

The long-haul carrier will offer services to 16 more cities from June 15, using Boeing 777-300ERs, including Manchester and Dublin.

The airline will be offering flights for passengers on the back of its scheduled cargo operations from Dubai to 29 cities, including Heathrow from June 11.

However, passengers are being reminded to check entry and exit requirements before their journeys with travel restrictions remaining in place in most countries, including the UK’s 14-day quarantine from Monday.

Other destinations being added include Bahrain, Zurich, Vienna, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, New York JFK, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Jakarta, Taipei, Hong Kong, Perth and Brisbane.

A spokesperson said: “Working closely with the UAE authorities, Emirates continues to take a measured and phased approach to flight resumption and rebuilding connections between Dubai and the world.

“Customers are reminded that travel restrictions remain in place, and travellers will only be accepted on flights if they comply with the eligibility and entry criteria requirements of their destination countries.”
