Emirates Airlines announced on Thursday that it will be offering flights to 10 more cities. The airline has been reintroducing passenger flights since late May, offering dozens of flights across the region, and to America, Europe, and Asia.

With Beirut’s airport slated to reopen on July 1, the Emirati carrier will be resuming flights back to Lebanon from Dubai, according to its announcement.

The 10 new cities include Colombo, Sialkot, Istanbul, Auckland, Brussels, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Barcelona, Washington DC, and of course Beirut.

With these additional 10 main cities, travelers will now be able to travel to 40 destinations through the Dubai-based carrier, “providing more options for customers who wish to return home or those traveling for essential purposes” stated Emirates in a release.

Emirates Airlines stated that it will add more flights to the following cities in July: London Heathrow, Manchester, Frankfurt, Paris, Zurich, Madrid, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Dublin, New York JFK, Toronto, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, and Hong Kong.


Airports in UAE had stopped offering commercial flights in March to contain the outbreak. Now, countries around the world are shifting back to ‘normal’ while implementing vital safety measures along the way.

The Lebanese in UAE will be able to finally come home to their families for summer, and Lebanon could probably see a surge in visitors from the Emirates.
