Emirates in coordination with Dubai Health Authority (DHA) have introduced additional precautions. Passengers on flight to Tunisia on 15th April, 2020, were all tested for COVID-19 before departing from Dubai. Emirates is the first airline to conduct on-site rapid COVID-19 tests for passengers.
The quick blood test was conducted by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and results were available within 10 minutes. This test was conveniently done at the Group Check-in area of Dubai International Airport Terminal 3.
All Emirates aircraft will go through enhanced cleaning and disinfection processes in Dubai, after each journey.
