Airport Show Dubai, the world’s largest annual airport industry B2B platform, has been rescheduled. The show was originally slated to take place in June, however, the organisers have announced that now it will take place from October 26-28 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, DWTC.
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.
"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.
The PIA has reduced its special flights’ fares by 20 to 30 per cent, extending maximum relief to the nationals stranded in the UAE due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The authorities said the conditions and procedures would be announced later in light of the preventive and precautionary measures taken by the UAE to curb the spread of Covid-19.
Emirates’ 2nd daily flight between Dubai and Tel Aviv will also provide another 20 tonnes of cargo belly-hold capacity for businesses, further opening global trade lanes through enhanced import and export opportunities.
