Emirates Airlines announced that it will resume passenger service to Glasgow in the United Kingdom, at a rate of 4 flights per week, using Boeing 777-200LR aircraft in the business and tourist classes division, according to the newspaper, “Al Bayan”.
As of August 11th, EK27 will depart from Dubai on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, at 7:50 am, arriving at Glasgow International Airport at 12:45 pm. The return flight, EK28, departs from Glasgow at 2:45 p.m. on the same days, landing at Dubai International Airport at 1:05 a.m. the following day (all times local time).
The service will become daily from next September.
With the UAE moving to the British yellow list for travel from Sunday, August 8, travelers arriving in the UK from Dubai no longer need to be quarantined in a government-approved hotel, provided they have received the full vaccine.
Adnan Kazim, Emirates Chief Commercial Officer, welcomed the UK’s decision to move the UAE to the yellow list for international travel.
“This step reflects the positive effects of the measures taken by the two countries to limit the spread of the virus,” he said. Since the UK announcement, we have seen a spike in inquiries from clients who are eager to travel to see their families and plan their children’s return to their schools and universities in the new semester.
Emirates is gradually rebuilding its global network, safely and sustainably. It has resumed passenger services to more than 120 passenger destinations, allowing its customers to travel seamlessly from and across Dubai to the Americas, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Asian Pacific Basin countries.
