Emirates Resumes Flights For Passengers From Manchester

Emirates has resumed flights for passengers between Manchester Airport (MAN) and Dubai International Airport (DXB), reconnecting people and businesses in the North of England to 30 destinations currently on Emirates’ growing network.

The twice weekly Boeing 777-300ER flights to MAN will operate every Wednesday and Sunday, with the inbound flight departing DXB at 7:20 (GST) and arriving in MAN at 12:00 (BST). The outbound flight will depart MAN at 14:05 (BST) and arrive in DXB at 00:20 (GST) the following day. The resumption of flights from Manchester makes the airport the second Emirates UK gateway to reopen, alongside London Heathrow.

This expansion of services allows UK customers to fly to destinations in the Asia Pacific, including Australia, with a convenient connection in Dubai. However, with travel restrictions remaining in place in many countries, customers are reminded to check entry and exit requirements before travelling.

Jason McVeigh, Emirates Deputy Airport Services Manager at Manchester Airport said: “Our teams in Manchester and Dubai are delighted to be resuming flights for passengers, reconnecting the North with Emirates’ global network after a pause. We look forward to welcoming passengers on board and have taken comprehensive steps to keep passengers, colleagues and communities safe.”

Emirates has implemented a comprehensive set of measures at every step of the customer journey to ensure the safety of its customers and employees on the ground and in the air, including the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes to all customers.
