Emirates Suspending Flights | Australia East Coast | Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane
Emirates has announced that they are going to suspend operations to the Australian East Coast cities of Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
The last flight operations to these cities for the foreseeable future will be on Saturday, Monday and Tuesday.
Emirates has claimed that the reason for this decision is due to “operational reasons”.

I’m interested to know what everyone’s thoughts on this are and what the “operational reasons” may be…
I personally believe it could be due to the new government regulations that all passengers arriving into Australia must receive a negative COVID-19 test prior to departure.
I believe this may deter people from flying and therefore further limiting the passenger loads on these flights.
The good news though is that it is only for the foreseeable future and I believe that once air travel and the demand returns, Emirates will once again operate to these cities.
What are your thoughts on this and why do you believe Emirates have made this decision?
