Emirates will resume services to three more European destinations in July.

The Dubai-based carrier will re-start flights to Nice from July 2, Lyon from July 9 and Malta via Larnaca in Cyprus from July 14.

The services to both French cities will initially be operated four times weekly. The move is in line with France easing its entry requirements for visitors on June 9. The lifting of entry restrictions will enable travellers based in the UAE to visit France without the need for quarantine if they have completed the two week period after taking both doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech or AstraZeneca vaccine. In addition, fully vaccinated customers must also hold a negative COVID-19 PCR-RT valid for 72 hours prior to departure, or a Rapid Antigen test result no more than 48 hours old. For more details on entry requirements to France, customers can check the travel requirements page on emirates.com. Emirates will serve both Nice and Lyon with its B777-300ER aircraft.

The airline’s three times weekly service to Malta via Larnaca, which will also be operated by this aircraft, expands its European network to 34 destinations.
