- Advertisment -

Dubai-based airline Emirates exerted more effort in imposing additional precaution against the spread of the new coronavirus.

Just recently, passengers on flight to Tunisia were all tested for Covid-19 before departing from Dubai.

Emirates is the very first airline in the world to conduct on-site rapid Covid-19 tests for passengers.

The Department of Health and Authortiy (DHA) conducted blood tests and results were made available within 10 minutes.

The test for the passenger was conducted at the Group check-in area of Dubai International Airport Terminal 3.

“The testing process has gone smoothly and we would like to take this opportunity to thank the DHA for their initiatives and innovative solutions,” Adel Al Redha, Emirates Chief Operating Officer, said in a statement.
