The UAE has eased entry restrictions for citizens of 12 countries. In parallel with the lifting of travel restrictions, Emirates is gradually expanding its network and expanding its services to meet the growing travel needs. In addition to the existing cities, 29 new cities will be re-available in the airline network, and Emirates will adjust its schedule as flights become more crowded and capacity increases due to an increasing demand for international leisure and business flights.
Emirates currently serves 120 destinations around the world, which represents nearly 90 percent of the airline’s pre-pandemic capacity.
The current expansions of flights are primarily due to destinations in the UK and Africa due to scheduling, and 12 US destinations and 70 flights per week will be expanded to Houston, Boston and San Francisco in August.
Emirates has offered free travel insurance to all passengers, regardless of class of travel and destination, and it covers a number of cases, including hospital and accommodation costs related to Covid infection.
You do not need to fill out any application to use the service, it will be automatically valid on confirmation of booking and valid for 31 days from the date of the first flight.
In some cases, insurance covers hospital costs of up to half a million dollars (up to about 150 million HUF) and pays up to 7,500 USD (up to 2.2 million HUF) for canceled flights for specific reasons.
In addition to its increased flight offerings, Emirates will continue to do its utmost to provide the highest possible level of service and ensure the safety and health of its passengers and employees. Before take off, all passengers receive a free hygiene kit with a mask, gloves and hand sanitizer.
