Emirates is operating flights of mercy – passenger services, from Dubai to Manila on three dates this month, April 24, 28 and 30, for residents and visitors wishing to return home.

The airline is also operating similar flights from Dubai to Frankfurt on April 25, 27 and 29; to Jakarta on April 26; to Johannesburg, on April 25; to Lagos, on April 26; to London Heathrow, on April 23, 24, 26, 28, 30; to Madrid, on April 29 and to Tunis, on April 30.

Those who wish to travel to Johannesburg, Lagos, and Tunis must contact the respective embassy or consulate for these countries in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

For all other flights, passengers can book directly on (select the “one-way” option when booking), or via their travel agent.

Only citizens of the destination countries, and those who meet the entry requirements of the destination will be allowed to board.

Customers will be required to follow all health and safety measures required by the UAE authorities and the country of destination.

Similar to other repatriation flights that Emirates has operated thus far, for health and safety reasons, the airline will offer a modified inflight service that reduces contact, and the risk of infection.

Passengers are required to apply social distancing guidelines during their journey and wear their own masks when at the airport and on board the aircraft.

Travellers should arrive at Dubai International airport Terminal 3 for check-in, three hours before departure. Emirates’ check-in counters will only process passengers holding confirmed bookings to the above destinations.
