To all kabayans in the UAE who want to go back to Philippines at this time of crisis, please be advised of this latest update from Emirates airline. The Dubai-based airline is adding 3 more flights from Dubai to Manila. This is only limited to Filipino citizens and those who meet the entry requirements.
To help more Filipinos in the UAE get home, Emirates plans to operate three more flights from Dubai to Manila next week, on 20, 22 and 24 April. Flights can be booked on emirates.com or via travel agents. This follows the successful operation of two flights to Manila this week which have already brought many Filipino residents and visitors home.
Only citizens of the Philippines and those who meet the entry requirements of the destination will be allowed to board. Passengers will be required to comply with all requirements of the destination country.
Similar to other repatriation flights that Emirates has operated thus far, for health and safety reasons, the airline will offer a modified inflight service that reduces contact, and the risk of infection. More information is available on emirates.com.
Passengers will be required to apply social distancing guidelines during their journey and wear their own masks when at the airport and on board the aircraft. Travellers should arrive at Dubai International airport Terminal 3 for check-in, three hours before departure. Emirates’ check-in counters will only process passengers holding confirmed bookings.
