Emirates airline is all set for a busy summer season this year, with over 550,000 tourists predicted to fly out of the UAE in June and July, on around 2,400 scheduled departures.

The airline continues adding flights and frequencies to its network and will be flying around 80% of its pre-pandemic capacity during the summer, equalling over one million seats in a week.


The carrier is recording accelerated daily booking volumes. It urges customers to schedule their summer vacations soon to assure they can fly on their desired dates and flights.

As travel persists to recover from the pandemic’s impacts, Emirates expects high demand for services to its six UK destinations, nine Indian routes and flights to Aman, Cairo, Beirut and Manila, as United Arab Emirates’ residents visit family and friends.

Vacation travel to Istanbul, Bangkok, Nice, Zurich, Vienna, Phuket, Oslo, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Brisbane and the west coast of the US is also predicted to be bullish as more nations in the world drop entry restrictions.

Tourists will also be able to sample Emirates’ new premium economy class.

From August 1, Monday, customers visiting London, Paris and Sydney from Dubai will be able to undergo the new premium economy cabins of the airline.

The carrier will also be operating its A380 aircraft to over 35 destinations this summer. Clients can look forward to the services particular to its flagship double-decker, including the onboard lounge and shower spa.


Under an attempt to assure smoother travel for passengers, Emirates is working on a “biometric path” in Terminal 3, presenting a contactless journey from select check-in desks, lounges as well as boarding gates.

Moreover, Ajman and the Northern Emirates customers can miss the DXB queues and take benefit of the airline’s Ajman check-in facility. At the same time, from Abu Dhabi, Emirates passengers can utilise Emirates’ bus service, which now works five times a day.
