The release notes that “Those who wish to travel to Johannesburg, Lagos, and Tunis must contact the respective embassy or consulate for these countries in the UAE.”

Passengers wishing to travel to Frankfurt, Jakarta, London, Madrid or Manila can book directly on, selecting the one-way option, or via a travel agent.

As with all of Emirates repatriation flights, only citizens of the destination countries, and those who meet the countries’ entry requirements, will be allowed to board.

For health and safety reasons, passengers have to wear a face mask while at the airport and for the duration of the flight. Social distancing must be followed, and some in-flight services have been modified to reduce contact and the risk of infection.

At this stage, Emirates is only offering outbound flights from Dubai. The airline’s regular commercial flights are set to remain grounded until July 2020, as the world recovers from the Covid-19 pandemic.

If you would like to book one of the Emirates repatriation flights out of Dubai, be sure to check with authorities in your home country to ensure you meet the requirements.
