Emirates has been cleared by the government to start flying passenger planes from April 6, 2020. This comes at a time when all the other airlines are advised to ground their commercial operations. Emirates flights that take from tomorrow are going to be lesser in number as they usually are. It is important to note that while the airline is permitted to fly commercial planes, there are conditions which the airline has to follow. Every flight which takes off should only carry passengers who were stuck in UAE because of the lockdown and now want to go home.
Emirates Flights To International Destinations About To Start From Tomorrow
Emirates flights to international destinations are going to start from tomorrow. The destinations which the airline is going to fly to are - Heathrow Airport at London, Frankfurt, Paris, Zurich, and Brussels. London will get four flights a week, and the rest of the destinations get three flights a week. The news was confirmed on Thursday by the President of Civil Aviation Authority and Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates, HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum. He sent out a tweet which said that Emirates had received the approval of UAE authorities to start flying a limited number of passenger planes.
Safety Of Passengers The Prime Priority Of Airline
HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum also added that the prime priority of Emirates is to look after the well being of its customers and their safety. Last month Emirates announced that it will be stopping all its commercial flights and will only operate the freighter aircraft for essential cargo distribution. Emirates also didn’t let go of any of their employees during the cash crunch situation. They instead decided to cut a percentage of their salary and keep them on board. Emirates flights that are going to fly from tomorrow are going to make stranded people in UAE very happy.
