Emirates will be flying to both Hong Kong and Singapore.
Emirates will begin flying to Hong Kong and Singapore this month following an announcement from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) that it will be lifting restrictions on transit passenger services.
The airline, which is based in Dubai, will add 16 more destinations from June 15. Twenty-nine cities in total will be available to Emirates passengers.
The additional destinations include Bahrain, Manchester, Zurich, Vienna, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Dublin, New York JFK, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Jakarta, Taipei, Hong Kong, Perth and Brisbane. Initially there will be three flights a week to Hong Kong.
Travellers flying between Asia Pacific, Europe and the Americas will be able to transit through Dubai. Passengers will be expected to check entry and exit requirements of their destinations before the journey.
From June 8, Emirates will offer flights from Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad for travellers from Pakistan who want to connect onwards to UAE destinations.
The airline has ramped up its hygiene measures on board and all passengers will receive a complimentary hygiene kit containing masks, gloves, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes.
Emirates suspended all passenger flights at the end of March following the closure of UAE airspace. Its last flight out of Hong Kong departed on March 25.
