Emirates to resume some passenger operations from April 06


Flight operation to resume for some European cities

Dubai based largest airline in Middle East Emirates Airline is going to resume some of its international flights from April 06.  This was announced by airline after getting approval from UAE authorities. Chairman Emirates group Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum tweeted on Thursday that "Emirates has received approval from UAE authorities to restart flying a limited number of passenger flights.  "From April 6, these flights will initially carry travellers outbound from UAE."
According to a statement issued by the Emirates airlines specified that flights would "resume from Dubai to London (Heathrow), Frankfurt, Paris, Brussels and Zurich, with four flights per week for London and three for the other cities. Cleaning and disinfection of the planes will take place after each flight and they will not carry passengers on return journeys to Dubai”.
Emirates Airlines grounded passenger operations last week as the UAE halted all passenger flights to fight the spread of coronavirus. The UAE has declared 814 coronavirus cases along with eight deaths. It has imposed a sweeping crackdown, including the flight ban and closure of borders.

Sheikh Ahmed said Emirates, which owns the world's largest fleet of Airbus A-380 superjumbos with 113 in its ranks, was looking to gradually resume passenger services. "Over the time, Emirates looks forward to the gradual resumption of passenger services in line with lifting of travel and operational restrictions, including assurance of health measures to safeguard our people and customers," he said.
When Emirates suspended flights, it cut between 25 percent and 50 percent of the basic salary of its 100,000-strong staff for three months, saying it wanted to avert layoffs. Emirates airline is the largest airline in the world as far as international passengers are concerned. Emirates airline was formed in 1980s with just two planes. But now it is the largest in Middle East and considered among the top best three airlines in the world.
Dubai government has announced to support the airline by injecting new capital. Dubai earns huge amount of revenues from tourism- aviation- hotels-financial services-trade and entertainment.  These sectors contribute enormously in the economy of Dubai.
