Emirates announced on Wednesday the resumption of flights between Dubai and Conakry, Guinea as well as Dakar in Senegal starting September 3, 2020. The flights will be operated twice weekly and the routes will be serviced with a Boeing 777-300ER.
Today (August 26, 2020), Emirates announced an expansion of the cities served in Africa to eight, with the resumption of service to Conakry, Guinea and Dakar, Senegal from September 3, 2020. The twice-weekly flights to Conakry and Dakar will be operated with a Boeing 777-300ER. The new service expands Emirates’ growing network to 77 cities with enhanced connectivity to and from the Middle East, West Asia, Europe, the Americas and the Far East via Dubai.
Travelers can also enjoy a stopover or holiday in Dubai as the city is now open to international and 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.
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. Additionally, the coverage 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.
Premium guests can enjoy Emirates’ Chauffeur Drive service 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. The airline reminds their valued guests that as travel restrictions remain in place in many areas, only travelers in compliance with destination eligibility and entry requirements will be accepted on flights.
