UAE airlines resume UK flights with restrictions
UAE airlines Emirates and Etihad have resumed passenger flights to London Heathrow effective today (June 8). However, only British and Irish nationals as well as passengers with residence rights for the UK will be permitted to travel into the country from the UAE.
“All passengers will be required to quarantine for 10 full days in a managed quarantine hotel, take a Covid-19 PCR test on or before day 2 and on or after day 8 of quarantining, and follow the national restrictions,” Abu Dhabi-based Etihad said in an update on its website.
Etihad said all guests travelling from the UAE will be required to pre-book a managed quarantine hotel within a 14-day period before arrival into London Heathrow.
