Airlines Expand List of Repatriation Flights - Coming Soon in UAE
14 April 2020

Two main UAE airline companies have announced about adding new destination flights to return nationals stuck in other countries.

Emirates Airline will add seven new cities to its list of destinations for repatriation flights from Dubai. Soon, it will be possible to fly to Tunis, Jakarta, Manila, Algiers, Taipei, Chicago and Kabul, with all flights operating out of Dubai International Airport Terminal 3.

At the same time, Etihad Airways will be starting new services from Abu Dhabi to London Heathrow, Brussels, Dublin, Tokyo and Zurich. These routes join the previously announced services to Melbourne, Amsterdam, Seoul, Singapore, Manila, and Jakarta. As previous flights, it will be one-way trips.

Airlines continue to carry passengers provided “only citizens of the destination country and those who meet the entry requirements will be allowed to board.” Emirates also announced that it would begin flying UAE nationals home on the return flights for free.

Emirates implemented additional restrictions to ensure safety and health of passengers during the COVID-19 outbreak. All the passengers must wear a mask at the airport and on board the plane, and meal services will be modified to reduce contact.

Also, online check-in and seat selection are not available at the moment, and cabin baggage won’t be accepted (although you can bring a laptop, handbag, briefcase or baby items).
