As Dubai prepares once again to welcome international visitors, Emirates announced a new ad campaign on Monday as the carrier welcomes tourists to Dubai. The world-class tourist destination will open on July 7, 2020 with new protocols for UAE citizens, residents and international visitors, to protect the health and safety of communities. Guests visiting Dubai are reminded that travel restrictions remain in place and that they will only be accepted on flights if they comply with eligibility and entry criteria of their destinations. Additionally, visitors to Dubai should hold an international health insurance policy covering COVID-19 related illnesses for the duration of their stay. In Monday’s announcement, Emirates Chairman and Chief Executive, H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Maktoum, said,
“I would like to thank HH Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid and HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed for their latest directives to reopen air travel which show their vision for Dubai as a world leader in business and tourism. This is a strong affirmation of Dubai’s readiness to resume aviation and economic activity after comprehensive planning, review, and preparation. We are confident that multi-layered measures that have been put in place in the air, on the ground, and throughout our city, enables us to mitigate risks of infection spread and manage any required response effectively. We believe that cities around the world are conducting ongoing reviews and will soon follow suit to update their birder entry requirements for international travellers.
“In the past few weeks, Emirates has gradually expanded our network by offering services to a number of destinations, providing the means for customers to travel through Dubai while serving the global demand for air freight movement. We continue to work closely with all stakeholders and international organizations to ensure the highest levels of health and safety for our crew, our customers and our communities. Currently, Emirates connects Dubai to 40 cities, and with the latest directives, we have the opportunity to expand our network and offer additional destinations which will be communicated in the coming days. We look forward to serving and welcoming our customers, and to connecting many cities again through our hub in Dubai.
“The next few weeks will be a big test for the whole aviation community in many ways. At Emirates we see a positive trend of traffic building across our network over the past few weeks, and we are ready to serve our customers.”
Emirates has implemented a comprehensive set of measures to ensure the health and well-being of guests and team members throughout their journey, including the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes. As travel restrictions remain in place in many locations, Emirates reminds guests that they will only be accepted on flights if they comply with eligibility and entry requirements of their destination countries.
