Emirates has announced plans to restart flights to London Gatwick from December 10th 2021
The resumption of the route is in response to the easing of travel restrictions and an upsurge in demand for winter sun, according to the airline. It also comes after the UK government announced that it would accept vaccination certificates from the UAE from October 4, meaning that travellers will no longer need to isolate upon arrival in the UK.
The daily service will be operated by a B777 aircraft with a three-class configuration. The flight will depart Dubai International at 0740 and arrive in Gatwick at 1140, while the return flight will depart Gatwick at 1335 and arrive in Dubai at 0040 the following day.
This will restore Emirates’ operations to six gateways across the UK, which include a six-times-daily A380 London Heathrow service, double daily A380 flights to Manchester, a ten-times-weekly service to Birmingham, a daily service to Glasgow, and a four-times-weekly service to Newcastle.
By the end of December, the airline will offer 48 weekly flights to the UK, allowing travellers to access the carrier’s global network of over 120 destinations.
