Emirates has announced it will resume flights to Harare Zimbabwe on the 1st of October with two weekly flights linked to its Lusaka service.
Flights to Harare will reconnect Zambia and Zimbabwe to key destinations across Europe, the Far East, the Americas, Australasia and West Asia with one convenient stop in Dubai.
The airline will also resume flights to Johannesburg (1 October), Cape Town (1 October), Durban (4 October) in South Africa; and Mauritius (3 October).
The addition of the five points will expand the Emirates’ global network to 92 destinations, as the airline gradually resumes its operations which were suspended earlier this year following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
The airline also advised customers flying in and out of South Africa that they can safely connect to Dubai and to an array of onwards connections to Europe, the Far East, Middle East, West Asia and Australasia.
Flight schedules for Emirates’ South African destinations will be available on emirates.com later this week.
Emirates also told its customers who require a COVID-19 PCR test certificate prior to departure from Dubai that they can avail of special rates at the American Hospital and their satellite clinics across Dubai by simply presenting their ticket or boarding pass. Home or office testing is also available, with results in 48 hours.
The airline also expressed commitment to cover COVID-19 related medical expenses, free of cost, should they be diagnosed with COVID-19 during their travel while they are away from home.
This cover is immediately effective for customers flying on Emirates until 31 December 2020, and is valid for 31 days from the moment they fly the first sector of their journey.
This means Emirates customers can continue to benefit from the added assurance of this cover, even if they travel onwards to another city after arriving at their Emirates destination.
