Emirates has announced that there will be several one-way passenger flights to some points during the next weeks of May. The Dubai-based airline company offers to make several one-way flights to Frankfurt, London Heathrow, Manila, Sao Paulo and Shanghai in May.
The official press release of the company tells that these limited passenger services will operate out of Dubai Terminal 3. Emirates will make flights to Frankfurt, Germany on May 4, 6, 9, 11 and 13; London Heathrow on May 3, 5, 7, 10, 12 and 14; and Manila, the Philippines on May 3, 6, 8, 10, 13, 15 and 16. And also, the airline will make one flight to Sao Paulo, Brazil on May 3.
Every traveller, who would like to catch one of these flights should book tickets directly on emirates.com or via their travel agent.
In plans, Emirates will also make one flight to Shanghai, China, but these passengers must contact their embassy or consulate in the UAE to be sure of meeting all requirements, otherwise, they will not be allowed to board.
As part of health and safety measures, all passengers have to wear a face mask at the airport and for the duration of the flight. As it was previously, social distancing is strictly required.
To sum up, Emirates announced that the company offers only outbound flights from Dubai. The regular commercial flights will be ceased until July 2020, as the world recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2, also known as COVID-19) is a new strain of coronavirus which is causing illness in humans and animals. Most people infected with the COVID-19 coronavirus will feel mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without any special treatment. Older people, as well as those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, cancer or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness, and require immediate assistance. Novel Coronavirus was first identified in a cluster with pneumonia symptoms in Wuhan city, Hubei province of China, quickly spreading around the world. On early March 2020, the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic had officially started, becoming the defining global health crisis of our time. Today, it is the greatest challenge people have faced since World War II, worsened by subsequent lockdowns of whole countries, collapse of entire industries, and a major economic recession.
