Emirates has announced that it will re-start passenger flights to the Maldives from July, 16.
According to a media release by the company, they will operate five flights a week between Male and Dubai, on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.
With the latest announcement, Emirates will resume operations in 52 destinations in July, offering travelers convenient connections between the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Americas through its Dubai hub, while ensuring the health and safety of customers and employees on the ground and in the air.
These flights can be booked online at Emirates website or via travel agents.
Customers from Emirates’ network can also travel to Dubai following the announcement last week that the city will be open to business and leisure visitors from 07 July, with new air travel protocols that facilitate travel for UAE citizens, residents and tourists while safeguarding the health and safety of visitors and communities.
Emirates has implemented health and safety guidelines to ensure the safety of its customers and employees on the ground and in the air, including the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes to all customers.
Customers are reminded that travel restrictions remain in place, and travelers will only be accepted on flights if they comply with the eligibility and entry criteria requirements of their destination countries.
This comes as the Maldives prepares to reopen its borders on July 15.
With the borders reopening on July 15, resorts and hotels on uninhabited islands as well as live-aboard vessels can begin hosting tourists right away. Guesthouses and hotels located on inhabited islands will be allowed to reopen on August 1. Passengers on cruise ships and yachts will be barred from disembarking at inhabited islands until then.
