The well-known airline, Emirates, has issued a statement acknowledging the increase of its frequencies between Dubai and Cairo adding three more flights per week to reach a total of 17, starting September the 3rd. This makes all 70 destinations of Emirates even more accessible to passengers going to and from Cairo passing through DXB.
“There is a clear air traffic flow between Cairo and Dubai, which makes business and commercial sense to introduce three additional flights. This will help us contribute to the revival of tourism in the country, as well as reopen more commercial corridors inside and outside Egypt,” says Ibrahim Ghanim, Emirates Airline’s Country Manager for Egypt and Libya. “As for expanding our schedule, it will offer better connectivity and broaden travel options to businessmen and families who are looking to visit Dubai or transit at Dubai International Airport connecting to any of our network destinations.”
The decision comes with all the necessary precautions as Emirates has committed to cover COVID-19 related medical expenses to all of its customers should they be diagnosed with the virus during their trip. This cover is immediately effective for passengers flying on Emirates till 31 October 2020 and is valid for 31 days from their journey. Needless to say, every traveler on board of an Emirates flight shall receive a complimentary hygiene kit containing masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, and antibacterial wipes so they comply with the measures taken aboard.
The airline ensures the flexibility of its booking policy so that passengers can enjoy generous rebooking terms and options in the event they have to change their travel plans due to COVID-19 related reasons. This applies only if you purchase a ticket by the 30th of September to travel before/on the 30th of November.
