Dubai: Emirates announces expansion of flight services to Italy in July following the start of “Covid-Tested flight” arrangements, which allow its passengers to travel to Italy without quarantine on arrival.

The airline will resume flights between Dubai and Venice from 1 July, initially offering 3 flights a week on the route. Emirates will also increase services to Milan from 8 to 10 weekly flights in July. This will comprise daily service on the Dubai-Milan-New York JFK route, and 3-weekly return flights between Dubai and Milan. Together with Emirates’ 5 weekly flights to Rome and 3 weekly flights to Bologna, this will take the airline’s total services to Italy to 21 weekly flights to 4 cities in July. 

Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Emirates Chairman and Chief Executive welcoming the Covid-Tested flight arrangements expressed the hope that more countries would consider similar arrangements to facilitate quarantine-free travel.

Effective 2 June, Emirates customers travelling to Italy aged 2 years and above, are required to hold a negative COVID-19 PCR-RT or Rapid Antigen test result valid for 48 hours prior to departure. Travellers must also take a Rapid Antigen swab test on arrival in Italy, at their own cost. 

Emirates has introduced measures on the ground throughout all touchpoints and onboard to provide its passengers with the highest safety and hygiene standards at every step of the journey. The airline has also recently introduced contactless technology to ease the customer journey through Dubai airport.

Emirates offers generous and flexible booking policies, an extension of its multi-risk insurance cover, and helping loyal customers retain their miles and tier status.
