In a statement by Emirates on Thursday said that this follows the successful operation of two flights to Manila this week which have already brought many Filipino residents and visitors home. Flights can be booked on emirates website or via travel agents.
Only citizens of the Philippines and those who meet the entry requirements of the destination will be allowed to board. Passengers will be required to comply with all requirements of the destination country.
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 will be 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.
"Passengers on today's flight to Tunisia were all tested for COVID-19 (respiratory disease) before departing from Dubai," the airline said in a statement. "Emirates is the first airline to conduct on-site rapid COVID-19 tests for passengers."
Those who wish to travel to Johannesburg, Lagos, and Tunis must contact the respective embassy or consulate for these countries in the UAE. For all other flights, passengers can book directly on emirates website (select the "one-way" option when booking), or via their travel agent.
Emirates Airline will offer free medical cover for COVID-19 and quarantine costs if any passenger is diagnosed with COVID-19 while travelling for the safety of the people and will boost their confidence to travel.
