Emirates flights operating to and from Larnaca and six other cities in the region are set for take-off in mid-July, raising their destination tally to 48.
An official in the airline industry told the Cyprus Mail that from July, 15 there would be four flights a week to Dubai. If all goes well, by August 1, there will be seven flights per week to Dubai.
There will also be seven flights per week to Malta as of August 1.
According to a press briefing from the company, Emirates will offer flights from seven new locations, including Larnaca (from July 15), Athens (July 15), Rome (July 15), Khartoum (July 3), Amman (July 5), Osaka (July 7) and Narita (July 8).
The more excellent connectivity comes as a boost to the airline industry, seeking to regain its balance after the pandemic.
The airline highlighted that cabin crew would be in full personal protective equipment, and travelers will need to wear masks at all times, except when eating or drinking.
The airline explains that throughout the flight, the air in aircraft cabins is cleaned with advanced Hepa air filters “as powerful as the ones used in hospitals” – removing 99.97 percent of viruses.
The air is fully renewed every two to three minutes, Emirates says.
