Flights to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport increase to double daily from February 1 while Los Angeles moves to a daily service.

In South America, Emirates is introducing a fifth weekly flight to Sao Paulo from February 5.

The airline says the extra capacity to the Americas is in line with increased passenger demand.

The Gulf carrier continues to offer passengers affected by COVID-19 flexibility with tickets valid for 24 months after the original date of booking.

The ticket will be accepted on any flight to the same destination or within the same region in the same travel class with no additional fees during this period.

This means that if the original booking was for London, a passenger could change their destination to Amsterdam in the same booking class for no additional cost.

Emirates has also arranged multi-risk travel insurance with COVID-19 cover for tickets purchased after December 1, 2020.

The cover is automatic and included in the price of a ticket. The coverage ends when a passenger returns to their country of departure or 48 hours after arrival on a one-way ticket.

The cover does not apply to tickets purchased from another airline for a journey containing Emirates sectors.
