Dubai: Emirates will be showcasing the UAE’s remarkable progress in its vaccination programme with a special flight on 10 April 2021 that will carry only a fully vaccinated crew and passengers onboard.

The special flight EK2021 operated by Emirates’ newest A380 aircraft will depart Dubai International Airport at 12:00hrs local time, to cruise over various areas across the UAE. The flight will return to Dubai at 14:30hrs local time.

Tickets for flight EK2021 will be available to UAE citizens and residents who have completed the two week period after their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. All fares collected for this special flight EK2021 will be donated to the Emirates Airline Foundation, the airline’s non-profit charity organisation which supports projects around the world aimed at improving the quality of life for disadvantaged children. 

All customers travelling on EK2021 will be provided pre-departure rapid Covid-19 testing, free of charge.

Passengers will be able to experience all of Dubai International Airport’s services and amenities on the ground before boarding. In addition, customers can also try out first-hand, all the latest measures to help travellers enjoy a safe and smooth journey, including the new biometric and contactless technology which Emirates has recently implemented at the check-in areas and boarding gates at Dubai airport.

To date, over 35,000 Emirates employees have received their COVID-19 vaccine shot from one of the company’s vaccination centres, with over 85% of the airline’s pilots and cabin crew already receiving two doses of the vaccine. On the other hand over 8 million vaccine shots have been administered in the UAE, protecting over half of the UAE’s population.
