To further enhance its COVID-19 measures, Emirates has implemented social distancing on its flights. Seats are now pre-allocated so that seats between individual passengers or family groups are kept vacant to help observe social distancing protocols.

Meanwhile, the Dubai-based carrier has already heightened precautionary measures at the airport and onboard to ensure the health and safety of both employees and customers.

Cabin crew, boarding agents, as well as ground staff who have direct contact with passengers will now don personal protective equipment (PPE), which includes a protective disposable gown over their uniforms and a safety visor,  alongside masks and gloves.

Gloves and masks are mandatory for all customers and employees at Dubai International airport, while thermal scanners continue to monitor the temperatures of all who step in. The floors have also been marked by physical distancing indicators to help travelers maintain the necessary distance during check-in and boarding processes.
