The UAE moved to the UK’s ‘amber’ list for travel on Sunday, meaning that travellers arriving in the UK from Dubai no longer need to quarantine in a government-approved hotel, provided they are fully vaccinated.
Adnan Kazim, Emirates Chief Commercial Officer, said, “Emirates welcomes the decision to add the UAE to the UK’s ‘amber list’ for international travel, reflecting the extensive steps that have been taken to mitigate the spread of the virus in the UK and UAE. Since the UK’s announcement, we’ve seen a huge surge in queries from customers desperate to travel to see their families, planning their kids’ return for the new school term, as well as their postponed business or holiday travel. Emirates is reviewing our operations to various points in the UK and any service restart will be announced in the usual fashion.”
Emirates has been gradually rebuilding its global network and has resumed passenger services to over 120 passenger destinations.
