Emirates resumes services to Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and St Petersburg
Emirates restarted services to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on 11 September 2021, while St Petersburg services will restart from 8 October 2021. The resumption of these services builds on Emirates’ growing global footprint, the continued lifting of entry restrictions, as well as demand recovery across the airline’s network.
From 8 October, flights between Dubai and St Petersburg will operate four times a week, and the airline will increase its services to daily from 21 October. All flights will operate on the 777-300ER.
From 11 September, Emirates will begin operating 24 weekly flights to Saudi Arabia, including daily flights to the capital Riyadh, daily A380 flights to Jeddah, daily flights to Dammam, and three weekly flights to Medina. Flights to Riyadh will increase to double-daily from 16 September, and plans are underway to boost frequencies across the other gateways by the end of September.
