As Australia prepares to re-open its borders, Dubai-based airline, Emirates, is increasing the frequency of Sydney flights to operate a daily service. According to a TTR Weekly report, the move is in response to travel demand to and from Australia. The vaccine rollout is gathering pace, with the state of New South Wales having already met its target and Victoria nearly there. Both states will re-open without quarantine for vaccinated citizens in November.
Australian citizens, permanent residents, and immediate family members will once again be able to travel internationally to and from Sydney and Melbourne without restrictions. However, to qualify, they must be fully vaccinated with an accepted Covid-19 vaccine.
From November 2, Emirates will operate a daily service between Dubai and Sydney on its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. The airline will also operate a service to Melbourne 4 times a week, but this may increase if the demand is there. TTR Weekly reports that capacity on flights to Sydney and Melbourne will also increase to 100%, or 354 passengers across all cabins.
According to TTR Weekly, the Emirates A380 will once more take to Australian skies from December 1, on the Dubai – Sydney route. The carrier’s flagship aircraft offers 516 seats across 3 classes of travel, Economy, Business, and First. The airline is also continuing to operate flights to Brisbane and Perth, but passengers travelling to these destinations will still face mandatory 14-day quarantine while the states’ Covid-19 restrictions are in force.
