In an exclusive interview with Dubai Eye 103.8’s Business Breakfast show, Adel Al Redha, COO of Emirates Airline, gives an insight into the conversation they have been having.

While there will definitely be “advantages” for those who are vaccinated against the coronavirus, he said it’s still “early” to announce the perks.

The discussions are ongoing, Al Redha confirmed, adding that as more people get vaccinated, the travel protocol will definitely change.

He also touched upon their recent decision to sell spare seats to passengers, and how the Dubai Health Authority and the Ministry of Health and Prevention are working closely to expand the digitisation of COVID medical records for travellers.
