DUBAI — Dubai-based carrier Emirates will re-start passenger services to Moscow Domodedovo Airport with two flights a week, starting Sept. 11 (Friday). The resumption of flights to Moscow will take the airline’s expanding network in Europe to 26 cities — offering Emirates’ global customers with more travel options to Europe, and customers in Russia with renewed connections to the Middle East, Asia Pacific, and Africa via Dubai.

Emirates has been gradually restoring its network connectivity, working closely with international and local authorities to responsibly resume passenger operations to meet travel demand, while always prioritizing the health and safety of its customers, crew, and communities. The addition of Moscow will take Emirates’ global network to 85 cities in September.
