As of July 1st, Emirates will return to connect Venice with its Dubai hub. The service will be operated for the time being with three flights per week. From the same month, the UAE carrier will also enhance its connection from Dubai to Milan, which will increase in frequency from 8 to 10 flights per week. A daily service will be added on the Dubai-Milan-New York Jfk route and an additional return flight three times a week between Dubai and Milan.
To date, the company already operates 5 weekly routes to Rome and three to Bologna. With the return of the service to Venice and the expansion of that to Milan, Emirates in July will offer 21 weekly flights from 4 cities in July. Boeing 777-300ERs will be used on all the routes in question.
The return of Emirates on all ‘its’ Italian routes, which will naturally also benefit the cargo sector, is – explains the same company – the result of the introduction of Covid-tested flights on authorized routes, which allow passengers to reach the Italy without having to undergo quarantine on arrival.
To date, as reported on the website of the Ministry of Health, it is possible for airlines to operate in a ‘Covid-tested key’ on the routes: Atlanta – Rome Fiumicino, New York – Rome Fiumicino, Atlanta – Milan Malpensa, New York – Milan Malpensa. To these have been added, since last May 14, also the flights arriving at the same airports in Milan and Rome from Canada, Japan, United Arab Emirates.
