DUBAI, UAE, 10 August 2021: Emirates will restart services on 11 August to Glasgow in Scotland, offering four weekly flights.
From 11 August to 30 October, flights between Dubai and Glasgow will operate four times weekly using an Emirates’ Boeing 777-200LR, in a two-class configuration, offering premium services in business class and economy class.
Emirates flight EK 27 will depart Dubai on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 0750, arriving at Glasgow International Airport at 1245 the same day. The return flight, EK 28, will depart Glasgow at 1435 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, arriving in Dubai at 0105 the following day (all times are local). From September, Emirates will increase to daily flights.
The UAE moved to the UK’s ‘amber’ list on 8 August, so travellers arriving in the UK from Dubai no longer need to quarantine in a government-approved hotel, provided they are fully vaccinated. The latest travel requirements to the UK are available here.
Emirates chief commercial officer Adnan Kazim said: “Emirates welcomes the decision to add the UAE to the UK’s ‘amber list’ for international travel, reflecting the extensive steps that have been taken to mitigate the spread of the virus in the UK and UAE.
Since the UK’s announcement, we’ve seen a huge surge in queries from customers desperate to travel to see their families, planning their kids’ return for the new school term, as well as their postponed business or holiday travel. Emirates is reviewing our operations to various points in the UK, and any service restart will be announced in the usual fashion.”
Emirates has been gradually rebuilding its global network in a safe and sustainable manner and has resumed passenger services to over 120 passenger destinations, allowing travellers to conveniently connect to the Americas, Europe, Africa, Middle East, and the Asia Pacific via Dubai.
