Today (August 27, 2020), Emirates announced that they will resume service to Bangkok, Thailand with daily flights from Dubai starting September 1st, 2020. With the resumption of service to Bangkok, Emirates will expand their global network to 78 destinations in September, offering travelers in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Asia-Pacific convenient connections via Dubai to the popular Thai destination. Flights to Bangkok will be operated with a Boeing 777-300ER configured with First, Business and Economy Class cabins. Travelers arriving in Bangkok are subject to regulations set by the Thai authorities and are urged to check the latest information at emirates.com/travelrestrictions.


Emirates’ guests purchasing tickets by September 30, 2020 for travel on or before November 30, 2020 will enjoy generous rebooking terms and options if their plans change due to unexpected COVID-19 related flight or travel restrictions or when they book a Flex or Flex Plus fare. Additionally, First and Business Class guests can enjoy Emirates’ Chauffeur Drive service on departure from Bangkok, in Dubai, and relax in the airline’s signature lounge facility at Dubai International Airport. The carrier has implemented a comprehensive set of measures at every step of the guest journey to ensure the health and wellbeing of their guests and team members. Emirates also distributes complimentary hygiene kits which include masks, gloves, hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes.


Emirates wants their guests to travel with confidence and has therefore committed to covering all COVID-19 related medical expenses, free of cost, should they be diagnosed with COVID-19 during their travel. The coverage is available to customers traveling in all cabins when their first flight is completed on or before October 31, 2020. The protection will remain valid for an additional 31 days after arriving at their first destination with Emirates, even if they travel onwards to another city. As an added convenience, no registration is required, and a hotline has been set up for assistance and coverage. If a customer’s travel plans are impacted by COVID-19 related flight or travel restrictions, their tickets will remain valid for 24 months. Emirates’ guests can rebook for travel later, request travel vouchers or receive a refund via an online form.


Travelers can also enjoy a stopover or holiday in Dubai as the city is now open to international leisure travelers. All inbound passengers to the UAE will require a COVID-19 PCR test, including UAE citizens, residents and tourists, regardless of their departure country. Dubai is one of the most popular global destinations, welcoming 16.7 million visitors in 2019. From sun-soaked beaches to heritage activities and world-class hospitality and leisure facilities, Dubai has something to offer for all guests. Additionally, Dubai was one of the world’s first cities to receive the ‘Safe Travels’ stamp from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) for their effective measures to ensure the health and safety of visitors.
