Emirates becomes first airline to conduct on-site rapid COVID-19 tests for passengers
Passengers on flight to Tunisia, the 15th of April, were all tested for COVID-19 before departing from Dubai. Emirates is the first airline to conduct on-site rapid COVID-19 tests for passengers.
The quick blood test was conducted by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and results were available within 10 minutes. This test was conveniently done at the Group Check-in area of Dubai International Airport Terminal 3.
Passengers are also required to wear their own masks when at the airport and on board the aircraft and follow social distancing guidelines. Emirates has modified its inflight services for health and safety reasons.
Cabin baggage are currently not accepted on flights. Carry-on items allowed in the cabin are limited to laptop, handbag, briefcase or baby items.
