Dhaka: Emirates resumes passenger flight operations to Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane from this week, following temporary suspension due to restriction imposed by the Australian government over Coronavirus strains, reports The Khaleej Times. Emirates flights to Sydney resumes on January 25, Melbourne from January 26, and Brisbane from January 28. Passenger flights to Perth, as well as cargo operations to all Australian points, will continue as scheduled.
All Emirates crew operating on Australian flights were already mandated to take a PCR test 48 hours prior to the scheduled flight departure from Dubai.
The airline in a statement said "With the latest adjustments, these tests will be administered in their homes, and our crew will also observe self-quarantine in their homes from the moment of testing until their flight. Combined with the hotel quarantine and tests on arrival in Australia, this effectively means that our crew is in a "bubble" from 48 hours before their flight, until they return to Dubai.”
Emirates currently operates double daily flights from Dhaka to Dubai and offers convenient connections to nearly 100 destinations worldwide including all major Australian cities.
