Dubai-based carrier Emirates has received approval from UAE authorities to start flying a limited number of passenger flights.
“From 6 April, these flights will initially carry travellers outbound from the UAE. Air cargo will also be carried on these flights to support trade and communities. Details will be announced soon,”‘ Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and CEO of Emirates Group, said.
As per the UAE government’s directive, Emirates temporarily suspended all passenger services from March 25, 2020, but it continued to operate cargo flights.
Earlier this week, it was announced that the Dubai government will support the world’s largest international carrier and also inject liquidity.
