Emirates’ flights from South Africa will remain suspended until March 20, 2021, in line with government directives that restrict the entry of travellers originating from South Africa into the UAE, the Dubai-based carrier said in a statement on its website.

Daily passenger flights to Johannesburg will resume from March 11 and will operate as EK763. However outbound passenger services outbound from Johannesburg to Dubai on EK 764 will remain suspended.

“Emirates regrets any inconvenience caused. Affected customers should contact their travel agent or Emirates contact centre for rebooking options. To receive update notifications, customers are requested to ensure their contact details are correct,” the airline said.

“Emirates remains committed to serving our customers in South Africa, and we look forward to resuming passenger services when conditions allow. We continue to work closely with all relevant authorities in this regard, and will endeavour to provide our customers with needed support to adjust their travel plans,” it said.
