14 weekly flights are operated by Emirates to Dubai. This includes 7 from Karachi, 5 from Lahore, 2 from Islamabad using its modern Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
Emirates Vice President Pakistan Mohammad Sarhan said, “We are extremely pleased to resume services successfully from Pakistan, and thank the authorities for the arrangements and their assistance. Emirates has implemented a comprehensive set of measures at every step of the traveler’s journey to ensure the health and safety of customers and employees at all touchpoints. Our customers traveling with us will find these measures reassuring and comforting.”
