Emirates Airlines’ chief commercial operations officer said today that the company intends to restore about 70 percent of its capacity by the winter travel season this year, according to CNBC.
The Dubai government tanker has been slashing capacity since the pandemic halted its flights for several weeks last year from March.
Since then, it has recovered operations with 151 Boeing 777 aircraft, but its Airbus A380 wide-body aircraft are still grounded.
“We already have a plan to restore about 70 percent of our energy by winter 2021,” Adnan Kazim told a news conference in Dubai.
Kazem said that the airline had resumed passenger flights to 120 destinations, which constituted about 85 percent of its destinations before the pandemic.
