Emirates has resumed commercial passenger flights from Manila to Dubai and expanded its network of connecting destinations (from Dubai) to 40.
After the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Federal Government lifted restrictions on transit passenger services, travelers from Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport ( NAIA) can now connect to any destination on Emirates’ current network of 40 destinations in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), Asia Pacific, Europe and the Americas.
The services for passengers between Dubai and Manila which resumed last week, June 11, will be offered three times per week on Emirates’ Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
In Manila, customers can book flights on EK335 to Dubai on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays (the June 20 flight will operate as EK333 instead of EK335), and onwards to destinations Emirates currently serves.
