On Thursday (June 10, 2021), Emirates announced the resumption of service to Malta via Larnaca, Cyprus with three weekly flights from July 14, 2021. The resumed route expands the airline’s network to 24 destinations and provides additional connectivity to the Emirates’ global network via Dubai International Airport (DXB). Malta welcomed UAE travelers back to the Maltese Islands on June 1, 2021, and visitors will enjoy quarantine-free travel to one of the Mediterranean’s most exciting destinations with beautiful beaches and diverse archaeological sites.
Flights to and from Malta will operate three times weekly through the carrier’s existing Larnaca service. The route will be serviced with a two-class Boeing 777-300ER featuring 42 lie-flat Business Class and 386 ergonomically-designed Economy Class seats. Emirates flight EK 109 will depart Dubai (DXB) on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 08:00 and arrive in Larnaca (LCA) at 11:10.

The return flight, EK 110, leaves Malta at 15:35 and arrives in Larnaca at 19:00, departing once again at 20:10 and arriving in Dubai at 01:05 the next day. Emirates’ guests will also enjoy seamless connectivity across Europe with codeshare partner Air Malta.
Emirates customers traveling to Malta who are five years or older must hold a negative COVID-19 test certificate for a test taken within 72 hours of arrival in Malta. Travelers must also present a completed passenger locator form (PLF) and negative PCR test certificate at check-in to be accepted for travel to Malta. When returning to Malta, fully-vaccinated Maltese nationals or residency permit holders may present a Maltese vaccination certificate instead of a negative COVID-19 test.
