Etihad Airways, Emirates, flydubai and Air Arabia are all able to facilitate these flights. Additionally, the Tweet also mentioned that “Emirates and flydubai will shortly announce the resumption of passenger flights to more cities with connections to, and through, Dubai”.

Currently, Etihad has been operating a number of special flights to a handful of destinations across the world to allow UAE residents stranded outside the country to return. These flights were also put in place to repatriate UAE nationals and foreign nationals stranded abroad.

Strict safety measures have been put in place for those travelling onboard flights, including wearing face masks for passengers, health-check ins, deep cleaning and lots more.

UAE airports have issued a list of strict instructions for persons travelling through. This includes not arriving more than four hours before your flight departure and the mandatory wearing of face masks and gloves – failure to do so will result in you being unable to enter the terminal.
