The number of countries that are receiving travelers from the United Arab Emirates without the need for a quarantine has increased to 19, after Spain announced the opening of its borders to fully fortified international visitors, starting tomorrow (Monday, June 7).
Emirati travelers and residents, planning their summer holidays, can now choose from more than 30 cities in 19 countries across the Emirates network.
As of next July, Emirates will operate more than 280 flights a week from Dubai to cities in Europe, the United States, the Middle East, Africa and popular tourist islands.
Spain is the latest European country to welcome back tourists. From June 7, tourists will be able to enter Spain if they have received the full vaccine at least 14 days before the date of travel, or they can show a negative result for a “Covid-19” test conducted 48 hours before arrival.
Travelers will need to present vaccination certificates upon arrival, and have received vaccinations authorized by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), or one of the vaccines on the WHO Emergency Use List, including Pfizer BioNTech, Sinopharm and Oxford/ AstraZeneca.
Unvaccinated children under the age of six are allowed to enter with their vaccinated parents, and children over the age of six need to show a negative PCR test result. International travelers should also complete the online FCS Health Monitoring Form prior to arrival.
Emirates currently operates 5 flights a week to Madrid and 4 flights a week to Barcelona and plans to add more as the demand for travel grows.
With the progress of the vaccination program across the world and the implementation of safe travel protocols, more countries are taking steps towards opening their borders for travel and tourism to and from the UAE. Emirates Airlines will continue to enhance its operations with the return of demand and support the rapid launch of tourism through its network with the opening of more safe corridors, providing for arrivals and departures the ability to travel without quarantine.
On the European continent, Emirates customers can enjoy comfortable travel without quarantine to Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Russia, Turkey, Spain and France (from 9 June).
In the Middle East, customers can reconnect with their family and friends, or enjoy a vacation in Jordan, Lebanon, Bahrain and Egypt. For sea lovers, Emirates Airlines offers comfortable flights to the Maldives and Seychelles, and recently announced that it will resume operating flights to Phuket starting from next July 2.
In Africa, city tours and luxury resorts can be enjoyed in Morocco, Kenya and Tanzania.
The United States, thanks to the rapid progress of the vaccination program, is becoming increasingly popular with tourists. Emirates currently operates flights to 11 destinations in the United States, and will add Miami as a new destination on July 21.
The carrier is also operating the A380 to several global cities this summer, including New York and Los Angeles. Mexico City continues to receive tourists and businessmen, and Emirates Airlines will resume service to the city from July 2, 2021.
Emirates continues to strengthen its partnership with flydubai, as it has expanded the joint network and program of flights to 48 cities in 33 countries without the need for a quarantine this summer, providing travelers with more options than any other carrier in the region.
Emirates is also developing IATA Passport capabilities on its flights to Barcelona, Moscow, Istanbul, New York, JFK and Madrid, and from London Heathrow, with plans to expand all its flights by July, in addition to paperless verification of medical records related to COVID-19″ through its partnership with the Dubai Health Authority.
Emirates customers can view Emirates Holidays programs that meet the highest standards of health and safety. The three-night programs in four-star hotels start from 2829 dirhams per person in Spain and 4279 dirhams in the Indian Ocean islands.
Five-night packages at four-star hotels start from AED 5,399 per person in Miami and AED 2,299 in Phuket.
Emirates continues its efforts to relieve the stress of travel, and has led the industry in protecting the health of its customers to ensure they feel safe and confident when making their travel decision, applying the latest health and safety measures at every step of the journey. The carrier also recently introduced contactless technology to facilitate the passage of customers through Dubai International Airport.
Emirates continues to maintain its leadership in the industry, with innovative products and services that meet the requirements of travelers in these unusual and changing circumstances. The airline recently strengthened its customer care initiatives with more generous and flexible booking policies, and also extended insurance coverage against various risks, helping its customers maintain their miles and tier status in the Emirates Skywards programme.
