Vaccinated UAE residents can now visit over 30 cities in 19 countries quarantine free: here’s what you need to know

Emirates airlines stated that UAE residents can now travel quarantine-free. The residents are allowed to travel to over 30 cities in 19 countries quarantine-free. They’ll be expanding their grid and starting more than 280 weekly flights from UAE heading to various destinations such as Europe, US, Middle East and Africa from July, stated the airlines this Sunday.

The pandemic had put a stop on everything: work, education, traveling. Last year was hard on all of us but now its time to get back to the old life. Slowly everything is opening up and everyone’s making constant efforts to make things as they were before the pandemic. The International Air Transport Association has the assumption that global passenger numbers will recuperate to 52 percent of pre-COVID-19 levels this year. By 2023, numbers are expected to transcend 2019 levels.

UAE-based Emirates airlines tweeted: “With Spain opening its doors to tourism, UAE nationals and residents can now plan their holidays to 19 countries, quarantine free. #FlyEmiratesFlyBetter” on June 6, 2021.

“UAE travelers planning their summer getaways can now choose from over 30 cities in 19 countries… that have opened their doors for tourism and business. More countries are taking steps towards opening their borders for travel and tourism to and from the UAE, as vaccination programs advance and protocols for safe travel are implemented.” Emirates quoted. The destinations passengers can fly quarantine-free with Emirates:

 Cyprus
 Greece
 Italy
 Russia
 Turkey
 Spain

 France
 Jordan
 Lebanon
 Cyprus
 Greece
 Italy
 Russia
 Turkey
 Spain
 France (from June 9)
 Jordan
 Lebanon

The airline has almost uplifted all the restrictions from this July. With an urge to go back to the old life, things seem to settle down for a while. The digital pass initiative from the International Air Transport Association allows passengers to fill their personal details, find out Covid-related testing requirements for their destination and share pre-departure Covid-19 test results with airlines ahead of flying.

“Air traffic plummeted to around 90 percent during the early stage of the coronavirus pandemic, leaving most of the world’s carriers in financial distress.” according to zawya.com. It looks like we are starting to get back to normal, in some way.
