Emirates to operate special A380 flight to Bahrain


In response to the high passenger demand, Emirates will operate a special one-off A380 service to Bahrain.

The flight will take off from Dubai on December 15, a day ahead of the country’s 49th National Day.

In compliance with the COVID-19 guidelines, Emirates customers arriving from Bahrain can take a complimentary PCR test on arrival in Dubai.

Alternately, they can do their COVID-19 PCR test 96 hours prior to departure.

Emirates has deployed the A380 on one-off missions to the Kingdom six times. The airline celebrated its 20th anniversary to Bahrain this year. It carried over six million passengers between Bahrain and Dubai since its first flight.
