To book a ticket, the traveler should go to its website, www.emirates.com, and select the one-way option when selecting dates in the booking page. If one chooses a return flight, no available flights will be shown on the screen.
If the page shows ‘not applicable’, it means that the specific flight and date is already sold out. One can always check the next available date by hovering to bottom page and clicking weekly calendar.
Meanwhile, Emirates is not offering cabin baggage. One can only bring essentials such as laptop, handbag, briefcase or baby items.
Following strict Covid-19 precautionary measures, there will be no online check-in as seats will be pre-assigned as per social distancing protocols.
It’s mandatory to bring face mask and hand gloves when traveling via Emirates.
