Emirates operates spl flight with vaccinated passengers

Emirates started a special flight on Saturday that carried fully vaccinated crew and passengers onboard.

The flight operated with Emirates’ newest A380 aircraft and with close to 400 fully vaccinated customers onboard was also supported by fully vaccinated teams on ground and inflight, said a press release.

The flight was operated to celebrate the UAE’s remarkable progress in vaccinating its citizens and residents from Covid-19 through a national vaccination programme that has administered close to 9 million vaccines doses to date.

All proceeds for EK2021 have been donated to the Emirates Airline Foundation, the airline’s non-profit charity organisation which supports projects around the world aimed at improving the quality of life for disadvantaged children around the world.

All EK2021 passengers were provided rapid Covid-19 PCR tests, facilitated by Pure Health. Pure Health, the largest integrated healthcare solutions provider in the UAE, has facilitated the administration of up to 4 million PCR tests at Dubai Airports to date.

Emirates now operates 17 flights a week from Dhaka and via Dubai offer convenient connections for travel to over 90 destinations worldwide.
