On Tuesday (March 9, 2021), Emirates announced that they will boost service to the Maldives and Seychelles from March 28, 2021, just ahead of the Easter holiday. The airline will offer 28 weekly flights via Dubai to Malé in the Maldives as well as seven weekly flights to Mahe in the Seychelles. Currently, Emirates offers 24 weekly flights to the Maldives as well as five weekly flights to the Seychelles and the routes are serviced with Boeing 777-300ERs. All customers will be required to present a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to departure. Travelers to the Maldives, excluding Maldives citizens, must present a negative PCR test result taken within 96 hours of departure.


Emirates’ guests requiring a COVID-19 PCR test prior to departure from Dubai can receive special pricing at clinics across Dubai by presenting their ticket or boarding pass. Home testing is also available, with results in 48 hours.


Emirates has safely restarted flights to over 90 destinations and the carrier’s Dubai hub remains one of the world’s most popular holiday stopover destinations. From pristine sun-soaked beaches and scuba diving to heritage activities and world-class hospitality, spa 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.


Emirates’ guests purchasing tickets for travel on or before September 30, 2021 will enjoy generous rebooking terms and options if their plans change due to unexpected COVID-19 related flight or travel restrictions, including the ability to change travel dates or extend ticket validity for up to two years. 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.
