Emirates resumes passenger flights to Dar es Salaam, five other destinations

Nairobi, Kenya (PANA) - Emirates airlines plans to restore services to a further six destinations, among them Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

The resumption of passenger flights is planned from 15 July to 15 August, bringing the carrier’s network to 58 cities.

In a press statement on Friday, the Middle Eastern carrier said it plans to resume flights to Geneva from 15 July, Los Angeles from 22 July, Dar es Salaam from 1 August, Prague and Sao Paulo from 2 August, and Boston from 15 August.

“We’ve seen an uptick in customer interest and demand since the announcement of Dubai’s re-opening of air transportation. We also offer increased travel options as we gradually re-establish our network connectivity,” said chief commercial officer, Adnan Kazim.

''We continue to work closely with all stakeholders to resume flight operations while ensuring that all necessary measures to safeguard the health and safety of our customers and employees are in place,'' he added.

Passengers will be able to connect through the carrier’s Dubai hub or visit the city itself, as it has re-opened for visitors.

The airline has amended its booking policies to offer customers flexibility with their travel plans.
