MIAMI – Emirates (EK) is slowly resuming routes spanning from Italy to Japan, after a long period of suspended operations due to the complications of COVID-19.

With seven new routes reopening after the COVID-19 lockdown came into effect, EK’s network reaches 48 cities and could increase further over the next few weeks. In the meantime, EK will continue to offer travelers convenient connection options in Dubai for customers across the world.

Furthermore, along with the connection in Dubai, EK is undertaking extensive measures to ensure the health and safety of customers and employees during all the journeys from the departure to the destination point.
