Emirates has confirmed it will resume flights between Dubai and Glasgow next month.

Last week Business Traveller reported the carrier’s plans to restart service to the Scottish city, within a piece looking at the resumption of Qatar Airways flights to Edinburgh.

And Emirates has now confirmed in a press release that its Dubai-Glasgow route will restart on July 15.

Other route resumptions also announced today include Cairo and Tunis (July 1), and Malé (July 16).

They bring the carrier’s network to 52 destinations for July, following last week’s announcement of the resumption of flights to Khartoum on July 3, followed by Amman on July 5, Osaka on July 7, Tokyo Narita on July 8, and Athens, Larnaca and Rome on July 15.

The carrier has been gradually rebuilding its network over the last month or so, adding ten routes earlier this month to cities including Auckland, Barcelona and Washington DC.

Last week Emirates also confirmed plans to resume A380 services to London and Paris – its first superjumbo flights since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.

A full list of the carrier’s current routes can be seen at emirates.com/wherewefly.

Dubai is set to reopen its doors to international visitors from July 7, with new protocols and conditions for citizens, residents and tourists.

Emirates itself has introduced a number of ground and inflight health and safety measures as services resume, including the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes to all customers.
