Dubai carrier Emirates will operate its A380 aircraft four times a day to London Heathrow from November 27 and six times a week to Manchester from December 2. The airline will also deploy additional A380 services to Moscow from the current two-a-week, to a daily service from November 25. Emirates will also increase flights to Birmingham and Glasgow from the current four-a-week to daily services at both cities, from November 27 and December 1 respectively. Emirates’ services to Manchester will increase from the current eight-a-week to 10 flights per week from December 1, of which six will be served by an Emirates A380 and four with a Boeing 777-300ER. These represent a significant expansion of Emirates services to the UK, following the recent establishment of the UK-UAE air travel corridor which has led to increased demand. Under the air travel corridor, travellers entering the UK from the UAE will no longer be required to quarantine. In the other direction, UK travellers heading to Dubai can opt to do their Covid-19 PCR tests 96 hours in advance of their flight, or to do the test on arrival in Dubai.
