Next month, Dubai based Emirates will resume flights to Nairobi, Baghdad and Basra as it slowly brings back destinations in its growing network.  These new cities will take the airline’s passenger network to 67 destinations in August, including seven points in Africa and five points in the Middle East.

Flights between Nairobi and Dubai will resume on 2nd August and will fly three times a week. The service between Basra and Dubai will also operate three times a week and commences on 10th August. Also starting on 10th will be the Baghdad flight from Dubai which is scheduled four times a week. The flights to all three destinations will be operated with Emirates Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

Free, global cover for COVID-19 related costs: Customers can now travel with confidence, as Emirates has committed to cover all COVID-19 related medical expenses, free of cost, should they be diagnosed with COVID-19 during their travel.

This cover is offered by Emirates free of cost to its customers regardless of class of travel or destination. It is immediately effective for customers flying on Emirates until 31 October 2020 (first flight to be completed on or before 31 October 2020), and is valid for 31 days from the moment they fly the first sector of their journey. This means Emirates customers can continue to benefit from the added assurance of this cover, even if they travel onwards to another city after arriving at their Emirates destination.

Customers do not need to register or fill in any forms before they travel, and they are not obligated to utilise this cover provided by Emirates.

Flexibility and assurance: With the gradual re-opening of borders over the summer, Emirates has revised its booking policies to offer customers more flexibility and confidence to plan their travel. Customers whose travel plans are disrupted by COVID-19 related flight or travel restrictions can simply hold on to their ticket which will be valid for 24 months and rebook to fly at a later time; request travel vouchers to offset against future Emirates purchases or request refunds via an online form on Emirates' website or via their travel booking agent.

Health and safety first: Emirates has implemented a comprehensive set of measures at every step of the customer journey to ensure the safety of its customers and employees on the ground and in the air, including the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes to all customers.
