“Having received requests from governments and customers to support the repatriation of travelers, Emirates will continue to operate flights to the following countries until further notice, as long as borders remain open, and there is demand:
It includes flights from and to Dubai to the UK, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Thailand, South Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Japan, Singapore, Australia, South Africa, USA, and Canada.
We aim to provide affected customers with updated information as early as possible.
