The airline will operate flights thrice weekly to Dhaka
Emirates resumed flights to and from Dhaka on Wednesday, allowing passengers to travel between Bangladesh and various destinations in Europe, the Americas and the Middle East.
The airline will operate flights thrice weekly to Dhaka, says a press release.
Flights will be operated with Emirates Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, the release added.
“We thank the Bangladeshi authorities for their support, and welcome the opportunity to be able to connect our customers in Bangladesh to destinations in Europe, America and the Far East, on a scheduled basis," said Saeed Abdulla Miran, Emirates area manager for Bangladesh.
Emirates also announced scheduled flights to Munich from 15 July also with Boeing 777-300ER.
In addition, the highly popular Emirates A380 aircraft will begin serving travellers on flights to London Heathrow and Paris starting from 15 July.
This marks the return of Emirates’ flagship aircraft on scheduled services since the Covid-19 pandemic forced the temporary grounding of the airline’s passenger fleet in March.
Adel Al Redha, Emirates CEO said: “We are looking forward to gradually introduce our A380 into more destinations according to the travel demand on specific destinations. The Emirates A380 experience remains unique in the industry, and even though we’ve modified services onboard for the health and safety of our crew and customers, we are confident that our customers would welcome flying again in this quiet, comfortable aircraft.”
Earlier in the week, an announcement came about reopening of Dubai to business and leisure visitors from 7 July, with new air travel protocols that facilitate travel for UAE citizens, residents and tourists while safeguarding the health and safety of travellers and communities.
Flight bookings can be made online at emirates.com or via travel agents.
As 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.
