It’s been well over a year since COVID-19 plagued us, and we might still be a long way from living out our ‘normal’ again, but things are finally looking up. After months, flights are resuming to some of our favorite destinations.
Emirates has announced that it will officially increase its flight schedule this week, meaning that UAE citizens and residents, particularly those who are vaccinated will be able to make their way over to Europe, Africa and the US for a much-needed holiday this season.
The move coincides with Spain and France reopening their borders. And as of now, Emirates operates a daily flight to Paris and will resume daily flights to Barcelona on July 2. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Travelers can also make their way to Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Russia and Turkey without the need to quarantine upon arrival. If you’re looking for a beach vacation, you can make your way to Zanzibar.
If you’re looking to plan your next trip, here’s a full list where you can fly this summer.
