Emirates resumes services to Seychelles and other destinations
Emirates has announced that it will resume passenger services to Seychelles from 01 August, coinciding with the country’s re-opening to international tourists. In addition, Emirates will increase its services to the Maldives from the current five a week, to six times a week from 04 August to meet customer demand. Emirates will also resume passenger services to Stockholm with weekly flights from 1 August. The restart of Stockholm flights means that all Emirates gateways in Scandinavia will have resumed services by August, with flights to Oslo resuming from 4 August and services to Copenhagen being in operation since June. Emirates has announced it will resume flights to Guangzhou (from 25 July) and Addis Ababa (from 1 August).
Flexibility and assurance
With the gradual re-opening of borders over the summer, Emirates has revised its booking policies to offer customers more flexibility and confidence to plan their travel. Customers whose travel plans are disrupted by COVID-19 related flight or travel restrictions, can simply hold on to their ticket which will be valid for 24 months and rebook to fly at a later time; request travel vouchers to offset against future Emirates purchases, or request refunds via an online form on Emirates’ website or via their travel booking agent.
Emirates currently serves over 60 destinations in its network, facilitating travel between the Americas, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the Asia Pacific through a convenient connection in Dubai for customers across the world.
