The spokesperson said that as Covid-19 flight and travel restrictions remain in place across many countries around the world, Emirates is "closely monitoring the situation as it evolves".

"We hope to resume services as soon as conditions allow. This includes receiving government approvals, the easing of travel restrictions and commercial demand,” the spokesperson added.
