Looks like things are changing.
The National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority, NCEMA, and the General Civil Aviation Authority, GCAA, have decided to suspend all inbound and outbound passenger flights and the transit of airline passengers in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for two weeks as part of the precautionary measures taken to curb the spread of the COVID-19.

The decision, which is subject to re-assessment, will take effect in 48 hours.

In a statement today, the GCAA said cargo and emergency evacuation flights would be exempt.

Appreciate this is a long way off but we were looking to go and visit my sister in Melbourne in Easter 2022. It looks like the EK evening flight from MEL is not showing as operating ( looked as far as Feb 2022) which makes connection to BHX (and most other UK regionals) very poor.

Does anybody know or have an opinion as to whether the evening flight will return? We'd prefer to use EK as we have some miles to use.

Emirates are very good at upping the schedules when needed & I think the U.K. market will return to 2019 levels quickly once the world returns to normal

Was EDI ‘suspended’ or officially dropped?

Depends I suppose if they still have an active contract with EDI airport. I think they still do with STN, but like many others is just suspended for the foreseeable.

Thanks Simon. As if by magic the evening flight from MEL is now showing in Feb 2022 with the morning one now gone so that means a much better connection to BHX.

Edit. MEL flight also now showing as A380 which wasn't the case when I posted originally

They let all the staff go at EDI, so I'd say "officially dropped"

With changes in UAE travel restrictions tonight, could there be a UK EK ramp up?

It will allow them to land and disgorge self loading freight in Manchester legally from Monday, rather than to hypocritical RED list entry points which for some reason I haven't quite grasped include Bristol and Birmingham however not the only major airport outside the capital with a significant long haul network.

The changes represent positive progress, but until major markets in Asia and (particularly) Australasia open up to travellers from the UK and vv, one would expect the ramp-up to be cautious. Even as restrictions are lifted, customers who generally book long-haul trips well in advance will remain wary of draconian rule changes imposed with minimal notice by politicians disrupting their eligibility to travel. I expect the recovery to 2019 levels to be slow (though the percentage rises in passenger numbers yoy will look amazing).

India going "amber list" from the UK will be helpful, looking beyond the UAE itself.
