Following the UK’s announcement of suspension of direct flights from the UAE, Emirates and Etihad have announced that they would be suspending passenger services between Dubai and all the UK points from Friday.
Emirates, on its website, said flights to Birmingham, Glasgow, London and Manchester will be suspended from Friday. Last flight to the UK will reach London Heathrow 3.12pm UAE time (11.12am UK time) on Friday, just less than two hours before the suspension comes into force.
Similarly, Etihad also announced suspension of direct flights between Abu Dhabi and UK airports. However, those who have already booked their tickets can travel when the flight service restarts, the Abu Dhabi-based airline said on its website.
