Emirates ramps up services to Italy

Supplied

Emirates Airline is expanding its services to Italy following the country's decision to allow quarantine-free travel for passengers flying from the UAE.

Flights between Dubai and Venice will resume from July 1, initially operating three times a week.

The airline will also increase services to Milan from eight to ten weekly flights in July.

This will include a daily service on the Dubai-Milan-New York JFK route, and thrice-weekly return flights between Dubai and Milan.

Along with Emirates' five weekly flights to Rome and three weekly flights to Bologna, this will take the airline's total services to Italy to 21 weekly flights to four cities in July.

Emirate's expansion of services in Italy follows the start of 'Covid-Tested flight' arrangements, which allow its passengers to travel to Italy without quarantine on arrival.

Effective June 2, Emirates customers travelling to Italy aged 2 years and above, are required to hold a negative COVID-19 PCR-RT or Rapid Antigen test result valid for 48 hours prior to departure.

Travellers must also take a Rapid Antigen swab test on arrival in Italy, at their own cost.
