While Dubai Tourism said this week that the United Arab Emirates is preparing to fully reopen its borders, Emirates has updated its flight list, including a number of new destinations.
This comes in addition to Dubai now being open to transit flights.
In addition to their existing flights to major cities in Europe, North America, and Asia, Emirates will now operate flights to 30 destinations including JFK New York, Manila, Singapore and Manchester.
As of Monday, a number of European and further destinations are now available to fly to, including New York. In addition to Milan, Paris and London, that now means that all four fashion capitals are available. While no one is suggesting it’s the right time to go on a shopping spree, the opening of the routes, along with other influential destinations on fashion’s trade show circuit, including Seoul, Amsterdam and Copenhagen, point to the early steps for resuming a fashion industry calendar.
Currently, a number of key menswear fashion weeks and tradeshows are going ahead digitally, including London Fashion Week Mens, which is taking place this weekend. Pitti Uomo, meanwhile, scheduled for June, has now been pushed back to September.
