UAE carrier Emirates has confirmed that it will resume daily services on its Taipei-Dubai route starting November 6.
The decision follows Taiwan’s reopening plan and the end of its mandatory Covid-19 quarantine restrictions for arrivals.
The daily services will be operated by a Boeing 777 aircraft. Flight EK366 from Dubai departs at 2.50am and arrives in Taipei at 2.45pm.
The return flight EK367 from Taipei departs at 11.45pm and arrives in Dubai at 4.35am the next day.
Eligible travellers can travel to Taiwan visa-free, and all inbound passengers are advised to undergo a seven-day self-health monitoring process.
Emirates commenced non-stop daily flights to Taipei in 2014, operated by a Boeing 777 aircraft. The Dubai-Taipei route was later upgraded with a daily two-class A380 service in 2016.
Emirates currently operates four weekly flights between Taipei and Dubai, which will be increased to daily services next month.
Apart from Taipei, Emirates has been increasing capacity to some of its most popular Asian destinations including operating additional frequencies to Singapore and Guangzhou, deploying its flagship A380 to Seoul and introducing its signature first class offering on the Manila-Dubai route, operated by a Boeing 777 aircraft.
Also, Emirates plans to upgrade its Narita-Dubai route with its flagship A380 from November 15. Furthermore, it will delink its current Dubai-Kuala Lumpur-Auckland route and serve both cities individually with an A380 starting December 1.
