Emirates Airline banks on Venice and Milan after India flights suspension places EK in disaster

Rumor has it that Emirates is in a difficult financial position with suspended flights to India and may have asked the UAE government for a possible bailout. The approach to survival is not to shorten the routes, but to expand. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, CEO of Emirates, is putting a new focus on Italy, including creating new flights from Dubai to Venice and Milan.

  1. Emirates in rough waters on suspended flights to India, the main feeder and transit market for the Dubai-based airline. The airline may have been considering government bailouts, rumor has it.
  2. Emirates will resume flights between Dubai and Venice from July 1st
  3. According to HRH Ahmed bin Saeed Al MaktoumThese flights, CEO of Emirates, will improve trade and tourism links between the UAE and Italy.

The airline will also increase its flights to Milan from 8 to 10 weekly flights in July. This includes a daily service on the JFK Dubai-Milan-New York route and three-weekly return flights between Dubai and Milan. Combined with Emirates’ 5 weekly flights to Rome and 3 weekly flights to Bologna, this will bring the airline’s total connection to Italy to 21 weekly flights to 4 cities in July. Emirates will serve Venice, Milan, Rome and Bologna with its modern and comfortable Boeing 777-300ER wide-body aircraft.

The expansion of Emirates’ flight service in Italy follows the start of “Covid-Tested Flight”Agreements that allow its passengers to travel to Italy without quarantine upon arrival.

His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and CEO of Emirates, said: “We welcome the flight arrangements tested by Covid and would like to thank the Italian and UAE authorities for their continuous efforts to facilitate and facilitate international travel. The UAE has a close and longstanding relationship with Italy and the safe return of air connectivity will help promote mutual trade and tourism. Dubai and the United Arab Emirates are a global trading center and home to people from more than 200 nations. They have spared no effort to protect communities from the pandemic – from our world-leading immunization program to our biosafety protocols across all sectors, including recreation and entertainment for schools, businesses and airports. We hope that more countries will consider similar regulations to make it easier to travel without quarantine. “

Starting June 2nd, Emirates customers traveling to Italy aged 2 and over must present a negative COVID-19 PCR RT or Rapid Antigen test result, valid for 48 hours, prior to departure. Travelers must perform a Rapid Antigen swab test upon arrival in Italy at their own expense.

Due to the lack of connectivity between Dubai and many Indian cities, Emirates is in a difficult position due to the lack of such transit travel. India has been hit by a series of COVID-19 infections that caused Emirates to cease operating more than 1 billion people in that country by June 30th.

Emirates continues to focus on various steps to make travel easier and has led the introduction of initiatives in collaboration with health authorities and organizations to protect the health of customers and ensure their safety. Emirates implemented on-site measures at all touchpoints and on board in order to offer its passengers the highest standards of safety and hygiene at every step of the journey. The airline also recently introduced contactless technologyto facilitate the customer journey through Dubai Airport.

Customers of all classes who are aware of their safety and well-being can enjoy more than 4,500 entertainment channels on ice, the airline’s award-winning in-flight entertainment system, as well as regionally inspired gourmet dishes.

Emirates continues to lead the industry with innovative products and services that meet the needs of travelers in a dynamic age. The airline recently continued its customer care initiatives with even more generous and flexible booking policies, expanding its insurance coverage for multiple risks, and helping loyal customers maintain their mileage and status status.
