Dubai: Emirates airline said its flights from South Africa will remain suspended until April 15, 2021, in line with government directives that restrict the entry of travellers originating from South Africa, into the UAE.
Daily passenger flights to Johannesburg will operate as EK763; however, outbound passenger services on EK 764 remain suspended. Customers who have been to or connected through South Africa in the last 14 days will not be permitted on any Emirates flights bound for Dubai.
“Emirates regrets any inconvenience caused – affected customers should contact their travel agent or Emirates contact centre for rebooking options,” said the airline on its website. “We look forward to resuming passenger services when conditions allow – we continue to work closely with all relevant authorities in this regard”
Last month, Emirates said it was halting all flights to and from Nigeria (Lagos and Abuja) until further notice.
