We’re pleased to announce that following the UAE government approval to resume passengers flights to a number of African countries, we will recommence services between Abu Dhabi and Johannesburg from 3 March 2022.


Passengers arriving from Johannesburg will be required to present both a PCR and rapid PCR test. This includes:


  • A negative PCR test taken within 48 hours of their departure from South Africa.
  • A negative rapid PCR test taken within six hours of their departure from the airport. They will also receive a free PCR test upon arrival at Abu Dhabi international airport.
