Fly safer to and through Dubai
Emirates and flydubai customers can travel to and through Dubai with a peace of mind as both airlines have implemented a comprehensive set of safety measures at every step of the customer journey. Since it safely reopened to international tourists in July 2020, Dubai remains one of the most popular holiday destinations for business and leisure travelers alike. It was one of the world’s first cities to obtain a Safe Travels stamp from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) – which endorses Dubai’s comprehensive and effective measures to ensure guest health and safety.
Visitors to the city can expect an unforgettable experience at Expo 2020 with live entertainment shows, cultural festivals, culinary experiences and inspiring workshops.
