Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airlines announce launch of flights

Following the lifting of the ban in the UAE, Emirates and Etihad Airlines have announced the resumption of their flights and both airlines have also resumed flights to Pakistan.

Emirates Airlines, one of the world's largest airlines, has said it will operate transit flights to 29 destinations in Asia, Europe, and North America from June 15.

According to Reuters news agency, the UAE in its statement also announced to operate flights to Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad from June 8.

Abu Dhabi's Etihad Airlines, however, announced the launch of passenger flights to 20 cities in Europe, Asia, and Australia from June 10.

The UAE's ban on flights was lifted on Wednesday after more than two months, with flights to most Gulf countries suspended in March due to the coronavirus.


Since then, only certain types of flights have been allowed to operate due to local restrictions.

Foreigners are barred from entering the UAE in addition to those with a residence permit, and foreigners in the country must also obtain permission from the UAE government before returning home.

On Thursday, Qatar Airways also announced the resumption of flights to more than 40 destinations in Pakistan, including Bangkok and Barcelona.

The airline soon announced the resumption of flights to Berlin and New York.

On the other hand, Turkey has also announced to start flights to 40 countries in June and 15 countries have announced to operate flights to Turkey in return.

Turkey closed its borders to prevent the spread of the virus, but after the virus improved the situation, domestic flights were resumed on Monday, after which the next phase will be international flights.
