Emirates airline Friday announced commencement of scheduled flight services from May 21 to nine destinations.

These include London, Chicago, Paris, Toronto, Sydney, Melbourne, Milan, Madrid and Frankfurt

The Gulf airline said it has initiated a stringent safety programme to ensure aircraft cabins remain clean and sanitary. “We are working closely with the authorities to plan the resumption of operations to additional destinations,” says Adel Al Redha, Emirates’ chief operating officer.

“We have implemented additional measures at the airport in coordination with the relevant authorities in respect to social distancing and sanitization. The safety and wellbeing of our employees, customers and communities, remain our top priority.”

Per Second News gathered that for health and safety reasons and to minimise interaction on-board, Emirates will offer a modified in-flight service. Magazines and print reading material will not be available, cabin baggage has to be checked-in, and customers can only bring essential items such as a laptop, handbag, briefcase or baby items on board.

 

The airline has already enhanced precautionary measures, so at Dubai International airport, customers and employees will have their temperatures checked via thermal scanners. Protective barriers have been installed at check-in counters to provide additional safety during interaction, and gloves and masks are mandatory for all customers and employees at the airport. In addition, Emirates’ cabin crew, boarding agents and ground staff who interact directly with travellers will don personal protective equipment including a protective disposable gown and safety visor.

Social distancing protocols will also be implemented. At this airport, this includes physical indicators being placed on the ground and at waiting areas to ensure travellers maintain a safe distance.
