Emirates Airline has announced it’s adding four more cities to its destination network, taking the total to over 50.
Passenger flights to Cairo and Tunis will begin on July 1, to Glasgow on July 15 and Malé in The Maldives from July 16.
These new additions brings the Dubai-based airline’s total destination network to 52 as of July. Emirates will be offering travellers connecting flights to the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe and the Americas via Dubai Airport.
Earlier this month, the airline revealed it was aiming to add 50 destinations to its flight schedule this month.

In an interview with the Khaleej Times, the Chief Operating Officer of Emirates, Adel Al Redha, discussed the “strong comeback” the airline was set to have.
Over the weekend, the airline announced it would be recommending flights to the following cities: Khartoum, Sudan (July 3), Amman, Jordan (July 5), Osaka, Japan (July 7), Narita, Japan (July 8), Athens, Greece (July 15), Larnaca, Cyprus (July 15) and Rome, Italy (15 July).
This comes after authorities announced Dubai would be able to welcome tourists back from July 7. All those intending to travel to Dubai present a negative COVID-19 test upon arrival, or undergo a test at the airport.
As well as a negative COVID-19 test, visitors must be prepared to follow the stringent guidelines in place for travelling to Dubai.
This includes having valid health insurance; filling out the health declaration form for entering the country; download the COVID-19 DXB app; and be aware airlines have the right to refuse passengers boarding if they suspect they may have COVID-19.
Last week, Emirates also posted a video in partnership with Dubai Tourism honing in on the message that the city is open for business.
“This city has its arms wide open, and they are open for you,” the uplifting video stated.
