Emirates to operate special flights to Saudi

Posted 10 March 2020 · Add Comment

Under a special dispensation from the authorities in Saudi Arabia, Emirates will operate selected flights to Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam from 12 to 15 March 2020.

 

This is to facilitate the return of travellers whose journeys were disrupted by the recent travel restrictions implemented by the Kingdom as a containment response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

 

Only Saudi nationals will be allowed to travel on these Emirates flights from Dubai to Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam.

 

Other nationals holding permits for the G20 Summit will be allowed to travel to Riyadh only.

 

The return Emirates flights from these 3 Saudi airports will only be open to non-Saudi nationals.
