Emirates will launch Covid-19 passenger testing on site as the aviation industry begins to rebuild confidence amid the corona virus pandemic.
Passengers flying to Tunisia were tested on Covid-19 before leaving Dubai. The results were available within ten minutes.
The program is run by the DHA – Dubai Health Authority. Adel Al Redha, Emirates Chief Operating Officer, said: “The testing process went smoothly and we would like to take this opportunity to thank the Dubai Health Authority for its initiatives and innovative solutions.
“We are working on plans to expand testing capabilities to include other flights in the future. This will enable us to conduct on-site testing and immediately give confirmation to Emirates passengers traveling to countries that need Covid 19 test certificates. ”
