Emirates resumed scheduled flights to Durban from yesterday, Thursday, October 8. The flights will operate three times a week on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
The resumption follows the temporary cancellation of flight EK775 between Durban and Dubai due to issues relating to the new alert level one lockdown travel regulations, which were interpreted to require crew to present a negative PCR test before entering South Africa. These regulations have now been amended.
EK775 is scheduled to depart from Dubai at 04h05, arriving at OR Tambo International Airport at 10h15. It will then depart from ORTIA at 11h55, arriving in Durban at 13h05. The return flight is scheduled to depart from Durban at 14h35, arriving in Dubai the next day at 00h55.
