24 May 2020 Dubai, UAE – After long cancellation of scheduled International flights to and from Dubai International Airport, Government-owned Emirates airlines scheduled to took off and land its flights starting last Thursday as reported by its National news channels.
Dubai Airports on Thursday announced its readiness to support Emirates airline resuming its flights from Dubai International Airport (DXB).

In order to maintain public safety and social-distancing requirements, the statement said travellers without confirmed tickets, passengers without proper PPE, and passengers who arrive at the airport earlier than four hours before their scheduled departure time, will not be permitted to enter the terminal buildings.
Passengers should also be conscious of curfew timings and have tickets available for presentation if and as required by Dubai Police.
The statement added: “Precautionary measures have been implemented throughout the airport to maintain the health and safety of our customers and staff. These measures include protective plexiglass at check-in and immigration counters; thermal and temperature screening; social-distancing markers; and increased levels of sanitisation in compliance with international standards set out by the relevant authorities.”
For those travelling, selected cafes, restaurants and retail outlets will also be open in the airport’s concourse, the statement concluded.
As thousands of Migrant workers have lost their job due to closure of companies they were employed, UAE has already requested various countries to accept their citizen arrival and planned to deliver them using their own airlines to the destinations of the passengers. It could resume other airlines such as Etihad and Air Arabia as well in the near future to transport foreign workers to their destinations.
