“Having said that, it’s natural for travellers to feel some anxiety about these new measures, which is why we want to provide our valued agent partners with the facts to stay informed about changing rules and regulations, subsequently allowing them to reassure their customers.
“We’ve produced a comprehensive information page which clearly details all of Emirates travel rules and safety measures on both outbound flights to Dubai and inbound flights to the UK, as well as their-flight experience and protocols in place at Dubai international airport.
“Not only can agents use this tool as a reference point, but they can also share it with their customers, to ensure they are fully informed and confident prior to travelling.
“The blog also underlines how the airline is maintaining Emirates’ iconic luxury touches throughout the first and business class experience, whilst simultaneously protecting the health and safety of staff and passengers alike.
“I would urge travel agents to make use of this tool, which will really help simplify the travel process for their customers, and to keep their eyes peeled for our helpful social media videos and e-shots designed to keep them informed of any updates or changes.”
On the Atlantis, the Palm, campaign, she said it would suit oth families and couples, adding: “Following on from an extremely challenging year in 2020, many of us are feeling the need for a holiday, and where better than Dubai, which offers year-round sunshine.
