DUBAI: Emirates said it would resume three weekly services to Malta via Larnaca in Cyprus from next week.
Malta officially welcomed UAE tourists back on June 1 who can visit the islands without the requirement to quarantine.
Flights to and from Malta will operate three times weekly through the airline’s existing Larnaca service on its two-class Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
Emirates flight EK109 will depart Dubai (DXB) every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 8 a.m.
It means that Emirates customers will also have access to other European cities via the airline’s codeshare agreement with Air Malta.
The airline said it would operate over 280 weekly flights in July from Dubai to cities in Europe, the US, Middle East, Africa, and other popular island getaways.
Emirates customers traveling to Malta, who are five years old or above, are required to hold a negative COVID-19 test certificate for a test taken within 72 hours of arrival in Malta. Passengers must also present a completed passenger locator form (PLF) and a negative COVID-19 PCR test certificate at check-in.
Fully vaccinated Maltese nationals or Malta residency permit holders may present a Maltese vaccination certificate instead of a negative COVID-19 PCR test certificate when returning to Malta.
As part of the Incentives for Free Independent Travelers (Fit) scheme launched by the Malta Tourism Authority to boost tourism, Emirates passengers visiting the Maltese Islands for a minimum of three nights can access discounted hotels and earn up to €200 credit when booking directly through them.
